Sadie's big questions:

What was your first radio memory?

My Mum listening to 'Housewife's Choice' and 'Sing Something Simple' on Sunday afternoons - which always made me feel slightly sick inside, as I knew bath bed and school loomed!

My first listening choice was Robbie Vincent on Radio London. I have loved speech radio from that moment on.

How did you first get into radio?

I got into radio by phoning in!!

I got through to the head of a major London radio station (LBC) and went mad complaining about the theatre reviewer.

He laughed, invited me to lunch and asked me to take over! So I reviewed theatre for Simon Bates for three years before getting my own show!

What is your favourite song ever?

Ooooh far too tough!! It depends on the mood I am in.

Sometimes it's 'The Living Years' or 'Who Wants To Live Forever?', sometimes 'Blame it on the Boogie' (actions imperative!!) but to get me going it's Tony Moore's 'Shake Your Tree' - check him out on the net - it's amazing!!

What one thing makes Essex so special?

Its coastline. I LOVE the sea and we are blessed in Essex with some of the best coastline in the world!!
