1. What time is your time slot and what does your session consist of? (segments, types of music, serials etc)

My programme is on Fridays from 8pm until 11pm, and covers the broad range of music and genres of music which are so popular with Golden Days Radio listeners. I add a sprinkling of special music from my own collection which, over the years, has become significant and enjoyable music to me.

2. How did you first connect with GDR?

I am an exponent of authentic folk music (Irish/Scottish /guitar/vocal),

For some time, a friend had been telling me about GDR and when I finally tuned in the first song I heard was the lovely, Irish singer, Ruby Murray, singing ‘Softly Softly’. I was instantly hooked because it took me right back to my childhood in Glasgow, listening to the Sunday night Top Twenty on Radio Luxembourg and warm memories of my Irish granny who taught me the history of Ireland through song. She was an adoring fan of Ruby Murray.

 

3. Why did you want to be a presenter?

With a career track record teaching children, for some time now I have been looking for a passionate and worthwhile senior community interest that I could sustain. I believe I have found it. My Irish granny would have championed Golden Days Radio as a community hero. We know that music has the power to bring peace and joy and inspire miracles when nothing else can. What better way than Golden Days Radio to achieve that.
4. What experience do you want to give your listeners?

Golden Days music has magical ways To make you smile and brighten your days.

Golden Days Radio already offers old time nostalgic music that has automatic appeal to seniors and all age groups. I believe I am lucky to have musical empathy with people young and old.
