What show(s) do you present and what time(s) can we hear them: I present Kitten Corner, which can be heard on a Thursday at 4 PM UK until 6 PM UK which is 11 AM until 1 PM US eastern across the net radio group, that’s both treehouse radio and the phoenix.
Briefly describe your show(s): During Kitten Corner, you’ll hear a wide variety of music, from the 60s to today, including artists you don’t often hear on mainstream radio stations.
For example, would you turn bbc radio 1 on and hear them play artists such as Karen Jacobsen? alterbridge? the answer is, highly unlikely.
We have a few features in the show:
There’s the ever popular cat litter, which is a song we all can’t stand and i’m open to suggestions.
Bambi’s Belter A track my dad (who’s nickname is bambi) picks every week for us to listen too and comment on.
The cat’s meow that’s 2 songs, of any genre, pop, rock, classical, jazz, which you think are really good, for whatever reason!
How long have you been broadcasting:
On and off since around 2005, there have been a few breaks, but now, i feel i’ve truly found my home and i enjoy doing it.
How did you get into broadcasting:
Being a radio presenter was something i’ve always wanted to do, right from a young age.
I’d play around with double tape decs and microphones, purely to see what i could do.
A friend told me about a radio station who were looking for new presenters, so i applied to them and got in.
When you’re not on air, what do you like to do:
A wide range of things. I love socialising, whether that be via a the use of a computer (going on twitter and facebook) or going to visit friends.
I spend quite a bit of my time with family too.
I love singing, attending art workshops and i also volunteer as a receptionist for my local society for the blind, My Sight Nottinghamshire.
I’m chair of the National Federation of the Blind Nottingham branch.

Really, it depends on the mood. Mostly rock or easy listening.
