Parkinson Radio Parkies

I had a prize winning career as an auditor, working in health, local government, telecoms and banking. I was an examiner for my professional body and wrote a regular column in the professional press. I worked in the UK, Singapore, Ireland and Australia and I also travelled extensively. On my 49th Birthday I was diagnosed with Parkinson’s and soon after, I retired from my high pressure job.

 I first met George Hanks online in a chatroom for people with Parkinson’s. He told me the story of a friend whose dying wish was to see an English speaking version of a web based radio station aimed specifically at people living with Parkinson’s. I agreed to help George and we began to broadcast, taking turns. George had raised money for the project. We had differing musical tastes, but regarded this as a positive, leading to greater variety in our programmes. Sadly, George passed away, and I was able to continue as the English voice of Radio Parkies, until more recently, other English speakers joined me. I also broadcast each week on my local community radio station.

I love music from most eras and from various genres. I consider that we need to keep in mind why we broadcast, and to provide interviews, information and friendship to those living with Parkinson’s, helping to keep spirits up and let people know that they are not alone.
