The Monday Mix

The Monday Mix - Presenters Andy & Jane Presland

Each Monday 8pm till 10pm

Take a little bit of rock; add some folk and pop, a sprinkle of the blues a pinch of rockabilly and a little disco too. Throw in some country, soul and jazz oh, and a splash of R&B. Music from around the world, from yesteryear to modern times.
Songs you know and love….and some you have never heard of, this is the recipe for the Monday Mix.

Jane and Andy hosted the second ever live show on Switch Dunmow in January 2014. The Monday Mix features have included Kink in the Link, Jane Remembers, This Week in Music, Jane’s Garden and Rockin’ all Over the World alongside staple favourites Presland Plays Presley, Jane’s Chart, Country Choice, Andy’s Album, Birthdays,  local bands and gigs.

The Monday Mix welcomes requests and dedications from listeners please get in touch via the website or facebook.

Jane Presland

Jane currently works at Saffron Walden Laundry part time but she has had a very varied working life so far. Her first job  after leaving school was at Ridgeons as a Salesperson then she worked abroad as a Thomson Rep, was a Tour Guide in Cambridge on an open top double decker bus before going to Drama School in 1990. Jane had a couple of acting roles and then got a job as a Hotel Entertainer in Mallorca and Menorca. She has also been an Estate Agent for at least 10 years.

Jane always loves music and has many musical tastes including Abba, Ben Folds, Steely Dan, Earth Wind and Fire and Matt Cardle. When she was 19 she started presenting a programme on hospital radio which she did for approximately 4 years and when she worked at Mimosa Park Hotel in Palma Nova, she presented a request programme on the hotel station, Radio Mimosa.

The opportunity to present a programme on Switch with her husband Andy who also did a show at the same hospital as her many years ago was too good to miss and theyare thoroughly enjoying the experience. They try to play a wide mixture of music to appeal to as many people as possible influenced a little, of course, by their own tastes and we sincerely hope the listeners will enjoy it.

Andy Presland

Although unable to play an instrument he has had a long standing love affair with music which began by listening to his Mum and Dad’s old 45’s on a radiogram.  Andy’s first love was and still is the music of the 50’s and in particular Elvis Presley and Eddie Cochran although his taste is incredibly varied and was heavily influenced by listening to John Peel and attending local gigs at the Square in Harlow.

Hospital radio and mobile discos further fuelled his love of music and he is really pleased to be a part of the Switch family with his wife Jane. Not only does it give him a chance to share his passion for music it also enables him to continue to learn about new styles of music with some of the great shows we have throughout the week.

When he is not planning for the Monday Mix, he like nothing more than attending a live gig and appreciating the talent and diversity that live entertainment brings. Oh, and he also has to do the day job to pay for all the records. His other passions are Tottenham Hotspur and Psychology - he thinks those two go together quite well!
