Questions and Answers: 

What's your favourite genre of music?
I love all decades and genres of music and plan to play them on my show.

When you're not at Epsom Hospital Radio, what are you doing?
When not at Epsom Hospital Radio I am out walking my dog or meeting with my friends, many of whom I have known since school. In my job as a nurse I am part of the COVID vaccination team vaccinating in care homes and the local clinics.

If you had £1,000,000 to spend on yourself and no-one else what would you spend it on?
With a million pounds I would firstly landscape my garden which is on a serious slope and paint my house throughout. Having dealt with the necessary I would drive myself and my dog at our leisure down to Italy and explore the whole country from top to bottom as I have never been. We would definitely stay in lovely luxury villas and hotels!

If you were marooned on a desert island, what would be the items you'd need most?
Marooned on a desert island I would need my dog, wi-fi, and my phone and tablet so I could keep in touch with friends and the world at large. The ability to keep the electrics powered up would be imperative too. However, I know I’m not cut out to live in isolation so would need rescuing asap!
