“This month’s playlist and Q&A are from ME. Slight change of plan..but tbh it’s what I’m good at. I normally am to be found ‘ backstage” of most places, things, life but today you have a smidging of an insight into ME. I decided to put out my first ever playlist for Amateurism Radio. I was SO NERVOUS, specially with my fave people in the mix too. Lordy. I’m so grateful for the friendship that has followed. They never let go of my hand, even though the toughest times. I want to say thank you my ATP team, AmRad team, my friends and my close family. I know what a lucky girl I am.”
