I can't remember a time in my life when I haven't cherished music.
I distinctly remember listening to Trevor Nelson on the radio with my mom and being hooked on MTV Base as a kid. So much so her parent's form of punishment was to ban her from watching the music channels.
I love an array of music from R&B to Dancehall, Disco and Garage. All of which have at some point been a soundtrack to either my life or those closest to me.
When planning the playlist for my radio show I like to think of the feeling I'd like to evoke in the listener. I think of how my song choices or choice of conversation can impact my listeners day.
In regards to conversations, I love to learn, and I welcome all opportunities too.
Between the interviews, I have watched/ listened to over the years and my own, I have enjoyed gaining further insight. Our experiences shape us massively, and what makes us unique is our interpretation of those experiences.
You can listen to Aaliyah every Friday morning on Newstyle Radio, Birmingham playing the biggest hits, new music and leading great conversations. Past guests i include Not3s, Joy Crookes, Lady Sanity and Cleo Morris from Mission Diverse.
