Join Julie every Friday from 1-3pm for Magic Moments.
Name: Julie Wolverson
Show: Friday's Magic Moments
Magic Moments focuses on music from the 1920's to the 1970's. There is also a feature of what happened in history on the day of the show, as well as a top ten selection that occurred on the day of the show from a particular selected year. Our care homes in Leyland and the surrounding areas also get requests played on behalf of their residents in the program.
I am from New Orleans, Louisiana, USA but have United Kingdom roots in my family lineage in all of the countries....England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland....as well as Germany. I'm married to Rev. Marc Wolverson, who serves at Leyland St. James Church of England church. He started as a presenter for Radio Leyland several years before I was asked to take part in the Magic Moments show. His shows are the Breakfast Show on Monday mornings and the Classic Rock Show on Monday evenings. We have lived in Leyland for nearly 8 years, in the UK for 21 years, and the Isle Of Man for 4 years.
I have a degree in Music Therapy from the states, which helps people emotionally, physically, mentally, or spiritually whatever their issues may be. I am also an artist, a scout leader, leader of many groups at St. James's, have a very strong faith, and love all people and animals- anything that lives, really. I love all music and have had a rich background of all sorts of styles and genres. My family is highly musical with musicians, singers, performers, comedians and general music lovers. My ultimate favourite music group/style is any acapella group like Acapeldridge, Pentatonics, or Take 6.
I like all kinds of food. There is nothing that I don't like. As my Mom used to say "You'll eat anything that doesn't walk off your plate." My weight pretty much shows that I like food. ? Being from New Orleans, I am used to having all sorts of weird and wonderful food. Being adventurous, I tried alligator. It's a bit rubbery and chewy and "tastes like chicken" (most things taste like chicken .....turtle, frog legs, eel....?)
If I could live anywhere in the world it would probably be Italy. However, being as I've never been there before, I have no idea whether I'll like it. I like temperature that's not too hot or too cold.....kind of like the good old UK really. I think I should probably just stay here.
