Name: Kym Frederick
Birthday: 30th April
Starsign: Taurus (Stubborn & Bossy – yup that’s me!)
Job: I’m excited because I’ve just been appointed Events Manager and Content Creator for my daughter’s company OneWayJourney.com. I’m also co-organiser of TEDxCasnewydd. On Sunday afternoons I work at the bar in my village social club. It’s the only time I get to chat with the neighbours!
What is your favourite…
Music Genre: This is a hard one but mostly I love old soul music and new country. Oh and 90s pop.
Favourite food: Italian and seafood. Actually, I just like food, especially my own cooking! I can’t stand olives, okra and artichokes though.
Favourite Film: Can I have two? The Commitments and Pride
Why did you join Vitalize?
I love radio and music. It’s kind of like having all these special friends that you never meet. I love it when listeners request songs and shout-outs. I love being a radio listener as well as presenting.
What is the best thing about Vitalize?
The people of course. They are the best!
What are your top 3 songs?
All Right Now by Free
Chicken Fried by Zac Brown Band
You Send Me by Sam Cooke
What is your most embarrassing moment?
Too many to choose from! One that springs to mind is splitting by skin tight satin trousers on stage. I was giving a great performance of David Bowie’s Jean Genie when I fell off my platform shoes. My black satin pants came unstitched from knee to knee. Cringe!
What is your favourite show on Vitalize?
I can’t choose. They are all so different. Some have the best music and some have the craziest presenters!
What makes Vitalize different from others?
Brilliant quiz nights and variety of music genres.
If you had to partner with another presenter, who would it be and why?
Can I have Sarah Cox from Radio 2? I feel like we understand each other and we could bring all our dogs to the show and get a whole new canine audience.
