Sandie Dunleavy
Sandie gives her listeners an eclectic mix of music

Sandie's choice in music is well known in the region having spent seven years cooling down Sunday afternoons, she's brought her Sinatra & Ella mode to evenings.

But it's as much to do with the song as the singer to be included in the show - so newer names such as Madeliene Peyroux and Barb Jungr are regulars too.

Scarborough born Sandie's background is decidedly military. She served in the WRAC, met and married Bob in Germany in 1972, then spent twenty years spinning around the globe as an army family.

Both their sons have followed suit!

Needless to say when one or both are in Iraq or Afghanistan Sandie watches the news without blinking!

When she's not at work Sandie is an avid film fan but in a move to get out of the dark cinema, Sandie has turned her back garden into a vegetable patch. Which she says has produced mixed results for these manicured and polished 'green fingers'.
