We were continuing the International Women’s Day vibes in the studio last week with a number of interesting female guests and stories, including a chat with a very strong lady – literally, as she’s a bodybuilder!
Suzie Volkes of The Valkryie Solution came in to chat to Feelgood Saturday presenter Naomi Sayers. Suzie talked all about the female fitness phenomenon she’s kicked off with her women’s health club and what it’s like on the women’s bodybuilding circuit. She even gave us some tips for exercises you can do at home while listening to the show every week and managed to get Naomi working out during her show too.
Suzie’s always on the look-out for new female warriors to drive the movement and you can find out more about it at thevalkyriesolution.com.
* We were all sad to hear of the passing of Ken Dodd. Ken spoke to our lunchtime presenter Bob Simpson back in 2013. He was warm, very funny and engaging and talked about his childhood, his early days in showbusiness and a very funny interview with The Beatles. You can hear it again on phoenixfm.com.
* Guests coming up in the next week include Keith Ball, son of jazz legend Kenny Ball talking about his new album and Andrew Newell, who will be starring for Jamaica in lawn bowls at the forthcoming Commonwealth Games.
* There will also be live music in the studio from The Young Machetes, The Goodbye Look, Milena Lainovic and Mr Happy Chainsaw.
