    About Helen. 

    I present and compile The Mixtape on a Sunday evening. It's two hours of my favourite music from the best decades : 80's and 90's. 

    I was brought up in Leighton Buzzard and moved to Milton Keynes when I was 18, where I was already hanging round radio stations. Got my first show on Milton Keynes Hospital Radio when I was 16! Lied about my age, as you had to be 18 to join. 
    And from there I pushed myself up the radio ladder, presenting The Morning Crew with Trevor and Helen on Horizon radio from 1995-2000, then going on to various stations around the country including Virgin radio, and then ending up at the BBC, where I was the only solo female breakfast show host in the whole of the country for a while! 

    Best thing about MK - The green areas. So many beautiful places to seek out and be peaceful in. 

    My first job - Working on a baby equipment stall on Leighton Buzzard market. 

    When I'm not on the radio - I am a slave to a 7 year old, run a book club, go to the cinema, do yoga, go out for posh meals, and am a funeral celebrant! 

    My Favourite music we play - Old school -Nineties versus Noughties after 9. Darren and Lia play some of my favourites. 

    If I won on the Secret Sound - I'd donate half to the Brain Tumour Research Charity based here in MK, and I'd spend the rest in TK Maxx buying whatever I wanted without my husband tutting! 

    Favourite Food - Homemade cake. Or Fish and Chips by the seaside. 

    I dislike - Rudeness, injustice, people who don't wash their hands after going to the loo, people who put DVDs back into the wrong cases, the smell and texture of coleslaw and I absolutely hate tomato ketchup. 

    Favourite show on MKFM - is Paul Green on a Sunday morning. I like it when he talks disparagingly about his wife. ?
