In September we travelled to Wellington to make Suzy & Friends - Radio Show with the very talented Daniel Rashid Mardani!
Daniel was wonderful to work with. He gave everything a go; from announcing the songs or stories, to telling jokes and sharing stories of his own. He even played the saxophone for us and he played it very well!!!
Daniel had some great advice, too, for kids just like you (and him :o).
Daniel was a fabulous radio star. He tunes in regularly and knew lots of the songs and stories we play, so was really comfortable behind the microphone. It was like he'd been one of our a radio star co-hosts before!
He's also very knowledgeable - I want him on my Quiz Night team (he knows lots of interesting stuff!)
We met Daniel at Wellington Access Radio. He hadn't been in a radio station before and enjoyed seeing "behind the scenes". He found it really interesting to see all the people and equipment involved in putting a radio show together. Daniel has a great sense of humour. He enjoys a good joke and likes making people laugh. He has some really good friends that he has lots of fun with. Daniel has a huge number of interests and when he's not gaming, online with his mates, he's reading, doing homework (!!!) or practising the saxophone.
Have you ever played Ratchet and Clank? It's a PS2 game. We found out that both Daniel and I love that game - but I think he's managed to get to higher levels than I ever have! :o) Daniel played us a really difficult piece before the radio show started, but we got him to play a song that everyone will recognise.
We loved meeting Daniel and can't wait to hear what he gets up to next. He's a very talented young man and we know he'll succeed at what ever he does!
