Hard to believe it’s been almost two years since Mandy Moran first joined June on air to talk about her plans for a major career change…
But after a brief encounter while out shopping recently, followed by a more leisurely coffee catch up a few days later. the two of them are back together again for this week’s Girls Around Town!
Mandy will be live in the studio during the second hour of the show, reminding listeners what inspired her to make the switch from fashion to funerals in late 2020 and sharing the story of her journey from one to the other.
It’s a journey that’s taken her through lockdowns and restrictions but now that’s all a thing of the past she’s looking forward to continuing to build herbusiness as a civil celebrant, guiding clients through the planning of funerals, weddings and naming ceremonies before going on to write and perform them for families and friends with love and respect.
Don’t forget to Put On Your Sunday Best on 107.8FM, on the apps, on Alexa or online from just after 11am this weekendfor this latest catch up with Mandy…
Living just a few minutes’ walk away from the Radio Newark studio, she’s bound to be bang on time so make sure you are too!!
Whisky and wine, fine leather and flannel sheets – what do you think they all have in common?
They’re just four of the things that pop up when you try Googling ‘things that get better with age’, the subject of next weekend’s on air chat between June and Mandy Moran…
They’ll be taking a light-hearted look at these and other items on the list when Mandy’s on the phone to the studiofrom just after 11.20am – and adding a few suggestions of their own too.
Needless to say, women are right up there – well, what you else would you expect from a discussion between two such prime examples? – and they’ll probably include one or two men as well!
On a slightly more serious note, Mandy will be updating listeners on her recent career change from fashion consultant to civil celebrant. Shortly after her first interview on the show in September, she passed her exam with flying colours and wasted no time getting started, carrying out her first funeral ceremonies just days later.
Make sure you’re tuned in to 107.8FM or listening online from 10am to 12 noon next Sunday for all this and more…
And in the meantime, why not share your comments on how you’ve been getting better with age on the Girls Around TownFacebookpage or Instagram feed?
It’s not unusual for guests on Girls Around Town to be talking about why and how they made the decision to change their careers.
But switching from fashion consultant to civil celebrant? That surely has to be a first and definitely one worth hearing more about…
Which is exactly what you’ll be doing when you tune in to this weekend’s show!
Based in Newark, just a stone’s throw away from the Radio Newark studios in fact, Mandy Moran will be on the phone to tell June – and you – what prompted her to take on such a role after many years working for two well-known clothing shops in town.
The new job’s not just about funerals though – as a celebrant, Mandy will be helping people to organise weddings and christenings too…
Tune in to 107.8FM or listen online from 11.20am on Sunday for her story – she’s an artist as well, so no doubt she’ll be talking about her passion for pencil and ink drawings during their chat.
And don’t miss the rest of your favourite weekend show – as usual, there’ll be plenty of gossip and good music to enjoy between 10am and 12 noon!
