So I have no idea as to where to start with this mission so I suppose the best place to start is at the start.
Rewind to February 2016. I was working for Heartland FM as the live, daily Drive time DJ.
My show was popular. The station’s audience grew from 21,000 to 28,000 while I was there. The station sadly ran out of money so my job was done. Two weeks and just the month of…Continue

I'm happy to provide…Continue
