How did you find out about BHBN?
Tell us about your show…
My show is produced for the Children’s wards around Birmingham Hospitals. Kids Time with Kira includes the latest charts, pop hits, Disney and film singalongs as well as a ‘Toddler Time’. I aim to brighten up their days with all their favourite music and getting listeners involved by taking their requests and dedications, so their favourites are played.
What would your three ‘Desert Island’ discs be and why?
– Bon Jovi – ‘New Jersey’! Bon Jovi is the music influence I grew up listening to which gave me the love music and lyrics. Introducing me to many other rock bands in all genres, but 80’s rock always being my favourite.
– Kip Moore – ‘Wild Ones’ I find this album is a great, with a mix of both soft and upbeat country, that you can zone out and chill to or dance about and sing to.
– Cher – Greatest hits – For me Cher is Pop Queen, with the best feel good music to sing and dance along too. From early music in the 60’s with Sonny to her classics like ‘Believe’.
What’s your weakness?
I can be timid and shy when not within my comfort zone. But music is always my comfort.
What’s your daily routine?
Get woken up by my two cats, Custard and Cookie…my furry alarm clocks. Always got to have my morning cuppa then either off to work or uni.
Lie in or early morning hike? A lie in.
The best place you’ve visited, and the place you’d most like to visit?
Best place I’ve visited is Amsterdam, a beautiful city. But the place I’d most like to visit is Nashville.
What’s your burning ambition?
To become a music journalist / radio presenter, being passionate about influencing and introducing music on to others.
Which celebrity inspires you and why?
Bon Jovi inspire me the most, I grew up listening to their music and found deeper meanings in their lyrics.
They inspire so much I got the lyrics “Stick to your guns” and “Aim from the heart” tattooed from the song Stick to your guns off the New Jersey album as I found meaning in these lyrics; to stand up for myself and what I believe in as well as to always to do the things I love.
Your perfect weekend?
I’d love to attend the CMA Music festival in Nashville, a weekend camping with live music from various country artists within an atmosphere I’d love to experience.
Which dream car would you like to hire?
I’d like my own custom camper van to travel with my two cats in the back. 😊
Which three words sum up how you’re feeling today?
Focused on graduating and the new things to follow.
Chilled listening to country playlist.
Happy as with loved ones.
What’s the best thing about being part of BHBN?
Being surrounded with people that have the same passion, love and excitement for music just as much as I do.
Your best moment at BHBN and your most embarrassing moment at BHBN?
My best moment and honour at BHBN is definitely being nominated for HBA’s Best Newcomer Award. My most embarrassing moment would have to be the first mistake I made… when I introduced ‘Rock around the clock’ as ‘Rock around the Christmas tree’… in February!
