I started bringing music to the public as a DJ in the late 70's/ early 80's. Then I discovered internet radio & presented on various stations, eventually opening up my own station which ran for 5 years but work commitments dicated otherwise & now I am back playing music to the masses on this station. Hope you enjoy my shows.
I started my radio training back in February 2014 as an employee for the NHS and decided to volunteer for my local hospital radio. I would visit the ward weekly and get requests from the patients some of who had a story to tell. I progressed to my own show with features of “Fascinating Facts” and “Collette’s Little Music Gems”.
In 2016 I approached my local Community Radio Station and was offered a show almost immediately. The Colly D Show was born. I enjoyed having guests on my shows with interviews from bands and artists and most famously Suzy Quatro, Limahl, D:ream, O.M.D, Al Murray and Ralph Malph from the 60’s TV Show “Happy Days” to name a few. I attended live “Let’s Rock” festival gigs.
I progressed on to co-hosting the “Transmission Show” offering a platform for new unsigned and signed artists globally.
In 2019 the local commercial radio station was looking for Traffic & Travel Presenters and I had training in putting together traffic and travel reports and announcing them on air at regular intervals which was fast paced and very rewarding to advise drivers on their way home.
I wanted a new challenge and was excited about joining Ocean City Radio where the story continues…
