Initially volunteering to help us out behind the scenes, as a supporter of community radio, a taster session in the studio got her hooked! With an eclectic taste in music and heaps of community spirit she enjoys bringing a mix of music from the 60s to current catchy tunes along with regular features Love Where You Live, Music With Meaning (loves a song with a good story behind it!) and #DerbyAmplified showcasing music by local artists and unsigned bands. Vanessa always mentions local goings-on, good causes, and gigs to catch around Derby and ends every show with a feel-good tune.
If you want to get a shout-out for your community event or if you’re a local artist and want to hear your song on-air e-mail Vanessa@in2derby.co.uk
Vanessa presents The V Show Monday nights 7pm-9pm. She is also Vice-Chair on In2’s committee and is keen to support more people to get into community radio and especially to encourage more women and diverse young talent onto the airwaves.
