Jo Davies
Jo began her broadcasting career on Kings Mill Hospital Radio

Jo started off volunteering at Kings Mill Hospital Radio.

She thinks there is still a scary picture of her up on the wall in their studios in what she thought was a trendy denim shirt.

It was at Kings Mill that she fell in love with chatting to people, finding out about them and being part of a team that could tell them what was happening in the world. She loved being able to choose the music too.

Midnight Train to Georgia - Gladys Knight & the Pips
Hungry Eyes - Eric Carmen
World of Our Own - Westlife
Back for Good - Take That
Man In the Mirror - Michael Jackson
Hallelujah - Blake
Undiscovered - James Morrison
Chasing Cars - Snow Patrol
Run For Your Life - Bucks Fizz
Lovin' Each Day - Ronan Keeting

Her life at Radio Nottingham began with volunteering for Alan Clifford, helping set up guests for his programme.

That is where her love of live theatre really took off. One of her first on air experiences was reviewing local theatre productions on Alan's show.

She is the celebrity booker for the station, from Torvill and Dean to Liza Minelli, and admits she adores meeting rich and famous people.

She also loves musical theatre. Les Miserables is her favourite production.

Jo Davies is on BBC Radio Nottingham 12.00 - 2.00pm, every Saturday.
