Sandra Radovanovic

Sandra has her own time zone appearing to everyone else as being late but actually all it really is that she has tapped into the Devon Ambrosia time warp! No matter much life Sandra has lived in her many re-incarnations from girl, student, woman, executive, mother, seeker of life true answers, radio presenter; Sandra’s mind and thoughts are a random mystery to most but quite plain and clear to her!

Although not from this planet Sandra has a keen interest in time travel, she was born in 645BC on the planet ZOOP ALPA 20, and she has webbed hands and feet, 8 foot tall and weighing in at 3 stone but looks great in a dress.

Phoenix Walker

 

I have lived in Plymouth all my life and find it really has much to offer. Interesting information about me I wrote and publish poetry. I wrote a complete book in lockdown yet to publish.

I love going on holiday and getting lost and exploring different cultural lifestyles.

I was a presenter at a previous Radio in Plymouth and it was and is a learning curve. I love Ferndale Community Radio and I have great passion for Radio. 

 

I took up meditation in lockdown and community radio and that kept my wellness healthy while the pandemic was effecting our world and lives all over the world.

 

I love having a show close to the weekend as we all need to dance and be free again. My goal is too make a podcast on wellness or meditation and continue to learning my craft at radio presentation. 

 

Anita Monk

Wrokdown was the brainchild of producer Anita Monk, who with the help of much loved Australian singer Wendy Stapleton, brought all the well known Australian artists, DJs, producers and managers to our TV screen.  This not only provided a wealth of information about their beginnings and how they got to be stars, but also a platform for promoting any new gigs or songs.  And from that, Wrokdown radio began, playing the best new songs from Australia and beyond.

Anita believes that Australian songwriters are world class, but they get very little support from the media.  Having her own show now on FCR means that these wonderful songs now get a bigger, much deserved audience.

Johnny Hawton

Johnny H been a hairdresser for 30 years also a complex support worker. Grew up in Plymouth. Spent stints in Liverpool and Cardiff but a home bird who loves Plymouth. Loves a request show with plenty of laughs and banter . Eclectic is the word of the day.
