Music: 80s kid through and through, love strange remixes of old songs (like the Von Trapp remix of can “I kick it?” by A Tribe Called Quest). Also love finding new local artists and finding ways of supporting them.

Music: I (obviously) like the 90s but my music tastes and knowledge wide and varied. I can go from country and western to club music, 50s to current, and anywhere in between. So don’t panic if you hear me covering someone else’s show, it’ll be fine – probably!

Music: Coming from a showbiz background has given me a deep passion for all things stage, screen and musical, as well as spotting a great melody, from pop to opera. Also love bringing the backstage fun of all the ‘glitz & glamour’ of Showtime to our keen listeners.

Music: As a child I sang Pink Floyd’s The Wall at a nursery rhyme party. Since then I’ve been a musical chameleon who will go from listening to rock one minute, pop the next and will flip from indie to dance in an instant. I love live music, acoustic nights and when an artist brings their own spin to a cover.
