Planet Rock welcomes Leona Graham to our corner of radio-land!
Leona joins us from our sister stations Absolute Classic Rock, Absolute Radio and Absolute 80s. She'll be stepping into the fold to cover when our regular presenters selfishly go on holiday...
Born in Birmingham - Leona was a teen rocker, who developed a love of bands in the 80s including Whitesnake, Def Leppard, Guns n Roses, Bon Jovi, Poison and Tesla.
As her journey into the world of rock music grew, she ventured back into the world of 60s and 70s getting into Jimi Hendrix, Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Creedence Clearwater Revival and Thin Lizzy. The passion continued to grow and she continued to develop her love of rock buying old vinyl, which she scoured for at second-hand markets.
Leona presented her first radio show at University called Thursday Night Rock, and went on to become President of The Rock Society at Warwick Uni, as well as DJ'ing at the 'Rock Soc' discos.
"Planet Rock plays music from my favourite bands and artists," says Leona. "I can't wait to be unleashed on the airwaves!".
