Presenter Profile – Melissa Hall

How did you first connect with GDR?

About 10 years ago whilst driving home from a function, I came across GDR as they were playing a Frank Sinatra song.

Frank happens to be my absolute favourite singer and so I continued to listen and enjoyed all the wonderful music that was being played. I’ve been happily listening ever since and subsequently became a member.

Why did you want to be a presenter?

I definitely feel that music is the key to the soul. It can lift our spirits, move us to tears or simply bring back a memory from the past.

I’m often transported back to a fond time when a great song is played. I can recall where I was and what I was doing when I first heard it.

It’s something that can only be enhanced when shared with others and is why I wanted to be a presenter at GDR.

What experience do you want to give your listeners?

To provide an uplifting and assorted array of fabulous hits and memories for listeners each week.
