Your TRUK Team
I'm Lucy a presenter on TRUK and also the founder! My first foray into radio was when I set up a Non League radio station in 2005 as it was frustrating not being able to get the results of lower league football. This was a success from day one
I was born and raised in Manchester, where I gained my love of The Blues by regularly attending the legendary “Band On The Wall”. I gained her love of classic soul thanks to her sister letting her have her old Stax and Motown records.
I'm a Scottish DJ, through most of the 80s, who's worked in hospital radio and was involved with one of the first U.K. lottery funded transgender support groups in 90s and early 2000s.
Ads joined us in September 2019 and you can hear them on...
I have been into music for a long time, regularly listening to the charts of the day from the 70s onwards
From an early age, I have always had a love for a variety of music genres including dance, house (as you experience from the shows I do here) and even RnB, hip pop and rap
Currently working PT as a teacher. Previous jobs include, butchers apprentice, bingo caller, nurse, pub manager, beach side cafe owner, artificial limb developer and cook
My main occupation is a bus driver for Bournemouth Transport which is the yellow buses you will see in the area.
I am an LGBTQ+ rights activist who is passionate about ensuring that there is a light shone on the LGBTQ+ community celebrating it, educating those within it and those who don't understand it and also connecting those who need support to support or indeed each other within their times of need.
I went to school at the Blind Institute until aged 11 and when I came to the UK in 1955 went to Linden Lodge school for the blind and then went to the Royal Normal College for the Blind in Shrewsbury, where I learned shorthand/typing and worked in the Civil Service for some time.
I enjoy presenting for Trans Radio UK and enjoy the shows I am involved in, they mean a great deal to me on a personal level
