Fran Whates

Can You Guess The Mystery Year?

Name: Frances Whates (Fran) 

Show: Fran's Big Hits - Friday 1pm to 3pm

Chart sounds and Guess the Year.

About Me: I am a young minded 48 Year old with a passion for life. I started my own Business as a DJ a while ago and love it. Friends would say I'm a born entertainer, any excuse to have fun and dress up silly and I'm there.

I like to try and help people in any way possible, I do take on too much at times and this is a failing of mine. When I’m not playing music I am a mental health support worker and feel that we are all at risk of this at times in our lives and we could be more sympathetic sometimes.

Hobbies: I love to sing, amateur dramatics when I find the time, arts and crafts. 

Favourite Food: Ice cream, chocolate, or anything sweet (being diabetic is a real nightmare)

Favourite Music/Artists: This is difficult because I love so much. My genre is 80's, but I love 70's Disco.

Real Hates: Narrow minded people, a lot of people act false, what's wrong with who you are, be a good person.

Real Loves: Animals. I have two Jack Russells called Mr Beaseley and Bella, they cuddle up to me every night and I love them.

I also have a Blue and Gold Macaw called Aztec, she is 3 now. People ask if she talks. Well, getting her to shut up is the problem!! She is wonderful and so affectionate, I like to take her out for children to meet her and she is very patient with them.
