In the latest Quick Q&A with 121Radio presenters, we spoke to Dickie Allen, who’s on air every Monday and Wednesday from 6pm.
What can potential listeners expect from your show?
A mix of modern and classic cult-status tracks with an offering of new up-and-coming independent musicians.
What is the best thing about working at 121 Radio?
I can present my show in a relaxed environment wearing my pink fluffy slippers – and the fact I get to play music I like to listen to and the listeners want to hear.
Who is your favourite artist?
That is a very tough choice – for rock it is Guns N’ Roses; sheer entertainment is Queen; shut-down your brain and let it wander – Pink Floyd.
What’s your favourite song of all time?
Another difficult question as my answer varies depending on my mood (typical female) and this is not what I would consider my favourite of all time but I will say if a song causes a physical response then it is worth listening to: Mike & The Mechanics ‘The Living Years’ always makes me teary-eyed whenever I hear it.
What is your favourite food?
A full-on Sunday roast lamb with the added side of Yorkshire pudding
If you could be an animal, what would you be and why?
Hedgehog – they are cute even though they are prickly.
