Hi, my name is Mike Tracey born and bred in Plymouth. I am an ex-Royal Navy veteran having served 8 years. One year serving in Submarines onboard HMSM Repulse a ballistic nuclear Sub. Then the rest of my service on ships HMS Hermes for the Falklands Conflict then HMS Ambuscade, and finally from building HMS Cornwall which was commissioned by Princess Diana. On leaving the Royal Navy in 1990 I have had a variety of jobs including Hotel Porter, Barman, Restaurant manager, sales assistant, bus driver, and delivery driver, making me a sort of jack of all trades but a master of none. At present, I work full-time as a Campus Support Assistant with the University of Plymouth. I have 2 dogs and keep freshwater tropical fish. My favourite sport is swimming, my favourite band of all time is The Electric Light Orchestra and I love 80s music. I love being a presenter with Ferndale Community Radio and getting to play all my favourite music and mix with all the other presenters which makes for a real family atmosphere.

Sandra has her own time zone appearing to everyone else as being late but actually all it really is that she has tapped into the Devon Ambrosia time warp! No matter much life Sandra has lived in her many re-incarnations from girl, student, woman, executive, mother, seeker of life true answers, and radio presenter; Sandra’s mind and thoughts are a random mystery to most but quite plain and clear to her!
Although not from this planet Sandra has a keen interest in time travel, she was born in 645BC on the planet ZOOP ALPA 20, and she has webbed hands and feet, is 8 feet tall, and weighs in at 3 stone but looks great in a dress.
George is the young trending kid with up-to-date songs and facts. He loves to talk even when it starts to bore other people but will try his hardest to make you laugh.
Nicholas Mark Ross
Hi, I’m Nicholas Ross, I have lived in Plymouth all my life. I currently work in retail and have worked in varieties of retail all my working life. I live with my partner and our cat. I have eclectic taste in music and was born in the 80s, so the 80s and 90s are my specialties. I am quite discerning with my music tastes, I either like it or I don’t, and there’s no room for maybe. I really enjoy being able to share my music tastes and what’s on in Plymouth at Ferndale Community Radio.
I have lived in Plymouth all my life and find it really has much to offer. Interesting information about me I wrote and publish poetry. I wrote a complete book in lockdown yet to publish.
I love going on holiday and getting lost and exploring different cultural lifestyles.
I was a presenter at a previous Radio in Plymouth and it was and is a learning curve. I love Ferndale Community Radio and I have a great passion for Radio.
I took up meditation in lockdown and community radio and that kept my wellness healthy while the pandemic was affecting our world and lives all over the world.
I love having a show close to the weekend as we all need to dance and be free again. My goal is to make a podcast on wellness or meditation and continue learning my craft at radio presentations.
Anita Monk - Australia
Wrokdown was the brainchild of producer Anita Monk, who with the help of much-loved Australian singer Wendy Stapleton, brought all the well-known Australian artists, DJs, producers, and managers to our TV screen. This not only provided a wealth of information about their beginnings and how they got to be stars, but also a platform for promoting any new gigs or songs. And from that, Wrokdown radio began, playing the best new songs from Australia and beyond.
Anita believes that Australian songwriters are world-class, but they get very little support from the media. Having her own show now on FCR means that these wonderful songs now get a bigger, much-deserved audience.
