Sally Naden

Despite being a southerner, Sally Naden now very much considers herself a bonafide Lancastrian.

''Dave and I met during the summer of 1973 at Summerland on the Isle of Man. I was a professional dancer and we were both in the building as it caught fire and only escaped by the skin of our teeth - 53 others were not as fortunate. Having fallen in love I moved from Kent to this wonderful county."

Sally gave up her theatrical career to start a family before putting herself through university as a mature student. After completing her Broadcast Journalism course she joined BBC Radio Lancashire.

"First I worked on the breakfast show, then with Jim Bowen on the award winning 'Happy Daft' morning show."

Four years ago Sally was diagnosed with breast cancer but she's bounced back with even more energy than before.

"When I came back after being off, I was desperate to thank all the amazing people of Lancashire who had sent me get well wishes."

You can hear Sally every weekday from 11-1pm as she presents a chat show with a panel of three guests.

"Every day I thank my lucky stars and grasp the day - I just hope that some of that comes through the radio to you."
