Wednesdays, from 5.00pm until 8.00pm


2. How did you first connect with GDR?

It was by chance that I came across 95.7 whilst tuning my car radio and thinking “Wow! Finally my kind of music”.


3. Why did you want to be a Receptionist/Program Assistant?

As a teacher with many years of experience communicating with all ages, I felt that as a Receptionist/Program Assistant I could use those communication skills in a much needed setting, Community Radio.


4. What are the most important things that you believe you can do for listeners who call in, and for the Presenter you are supporting?

For listeners, It’s about providing a friendly and familiar voice so that those who call in feel comfortable and acknowledged. it’s also about sharing with them a passion for great music.

For Presenters, it’s about helping to meet their needs in the smooth running of the programs and ensuring messages are clear and accurate, ready for broadcast.
