I am PASSIONATE ABOUT RADIO - I grew up with it not having TV at home til I was 12 and I almost always listen in preference to watching. Creating it and broadcasting is such a pleasure and I also train people in radio skills - with Community Champions and freelance. I produce and present all my shows mostly live. I do editing and production on request and create jingles, stings and more.

UP!!D8: Passing Clouds were formally evicted from their building in the Autumn, however they went on to get the building declared an Asset of Community Value which prohibits change of purpose and allows purchase by Passing Clouds.

My produced/presented shows include African Essence and DJ Debbie meets as well as material for Women's Radio Group where I coordinated the Ealing Women in the community series.. Currently I have a new initiative called Community Matters in development with www.avenuesradio.com and Women's Radio Group.

Resonance have a constant appeal on to keep going so do go have a look and see how you can help there.
African Essence was also on SOAS RADIO (formerly Open Air) and some excellent shows can still be heard on the site. Many thanks also to Open Air (SOAS) for the airtime!
African Essence playlist archive is found here African Essence delighted in presenting trademark incisive informative and entertaining interviews with the movers and shakers on the African arts and cultural scene here in London and throughout the Diaspora featuring well known people as well as unsung community pioneers. DJ Debbie (Golt) and Anne Wanjie selected African music of all eras, styles and flavas - bubbling up artists and household names, seeped in tradition or burning the remix lasers, classics and growers alike. The only criteria: great music to share. I will be putting more audio up on my own Outerglobe Mixcloud as time goes on.
With an especial emphasis on the music and wider arts of London, African Essence's remit went worldwide. It is a body of work I am very proud of - alongside Anne Wanjie co producer/presenter.
