Angie Greaves says Radio is her first love. After 25 years she still can’t believe she gets the jitters after the news jingle and before the first link of every show! It’s been 25 years now and she's worked with some radio greats, interviewed some amazing artists, actors and authors and have a multitude of stories to tell. In her spare time she tries to exercise as much as possible as body consciousness is one of her top priorities – you get to a certain age and your body doesn’t listen to you like it used to! She has two girls – one teenager and one tweenie – so motherhood is also a major part of her daily routine. She's passionate about literacy and reading, and two mornings a week she reads with children in my local primary school. And somewhere in my schedule Mr. G gets a look in!
