Tell Us A Little About Yourself?

I have lived in Barrow since birth and have 2 beautiful teenage daughters who are my world. At 17 years of age I joined the shipyard working on the Capital Accounts Section where I remained for 10 years before leaving to be a at home mother. I now work part time for an organisation that provides a Domestic Violence Service in Cumbria and North Lancashire.

What Kind Of Music Do You Like?

I like a variety of music ranging from Billie Holiday to George Ezra. Some of my favourite artists/groups are Olly Murs, Flo Rida, Ellie Goulding and ELO.

What Got You Interested In Radio Lonsdale?

I was a volunteer for RL back in the 1980s when we helped patients play radio bingo and collected music requests. I joined again in January 2014 and am enjoying every part of it.  I decided to have a bash at presenting and, after completing the requisite training course, I now present the Thursday Request Show with my friend, Jayne Wright.

In the meantime I have been busy co-ordinating the ward visits over the past two years or so and was the Assistant Station Manager for around a year or so.  This year I made the step up to Station Manager and I thank my colleagues for their vote of confidence.  I look forward to another fantastic year for Radio Lonsdale.
