with Donna Joseph
Donna joined BHBN as a request presenter
for the Queen Elizabeth and the Women’s Hospital in August 2012 and in October 2013 she started her own show called Good Vibrations which as Donna describes consists of music and chat that feels good for the Soul.
During the two hours of Good Vibrations Donna plays her favourite classic soul soul tunes and celebrates the days soul artists birthdays by playing their most popular tracks. Each week Donna is joined by 93 year old Mary Sandall who shares three of her favourite tracks for the popular feature Mary’s Favourites.
Donna has interviewed many guests on her show and is always looking for guests with a mission or story to share. Over the years Donna has had the pleasure of interviewing some of her favourite soul artists such as Leee John from 80’s Soul group Imagination and Jeffrey Daniel from Shalamar.
Join Donna each Monday from 5-7pm
I am a Love and Life Coach and
My talks are about the power of love, confidence and communication and are based on my own experiences. My mission is to help people understand the power they have within themselves to change their lives. Depending on the age group of my audience I may use magic to show how negative thoughts can disappear. During my talks, I guide the audience to use their imagination and teach how to visualise dreams and desires. This exercise is designed to teach the power of the mind and to help the audience understand they have the power within to make their dreams come true. Here are some other areas I may talk about:
- Understanding the moment and letting things go from the past.
- Embracing and loving your own, and everyone else’s differences
- Goals and Affirmations and how to create what you want.
At the end of the talks work sheet are given out, these could be affirmations, dauly tips and reminders to write goals etc.. With the content above I am developing an online program which will lead to workshops and one to one coaching sessions. The online course includes tasks and worksheets, audios and videos.so, for example, I work a lot on goals and daily routines, and so one task would be to complete a diary over 5 consecutive days for example. I create and design the tasks, worksheets, audios and videos
Mary Sandall’s Favourites
Good Vibrations is the home of Mary’s Favourites. Three of Mary’s favourite are played each week at around 6pm
On August Bank Holiday 2018 BHBN devoted a whole hour to 91 year old Mary herself presenting her favourite music. It resulted in features in local & national newspapers and an appearance on the Jonathon Ross Show. Mary is housebound and says that BHBN keeps her going.
Even at her advanced age Mary uses her Tablet to play her favourites on Spotify, check out music on Shazam and regularly listens to BHBN Hospital Radio.
And now BBC Midlands Today has joined the frenzy to speak to Mary. Reporter Nichola Beckford and Cameraman Gary Darfield went to Mary’s home to to talk to her and Donna as they chose the weeks Mary’s Favourites. Then they followed Donna to the Studio to film Mary’s favourites being broadcast.
