Funtime at 11 with Paul & Isabel
The content of our show is easy listening music including jazz. We have
interviews with invited guests and generally hope our show is light hearted fun for all.
Something a little different is our Dancing on Air spot where Paul and Isabel teach you how to dancel! This can be a riotous few minutes for Paul and our listeners!
I have been a dance teacher for 30 years. During the 1980’s I attended Braeside International Theatre School along with many pupils who went on to become internationally renowned stars. During the 1990’s I was teaching in America at the Fred Astaire Dance Studio. I then went to Canada to teach at the Arthur Murray Dance Studio
in Toronto. On returning home I started my own dance school in the North West covering the whole of Manchester. Last year 2008 it gave me great pleasure to start at WFM radio as a volunteer. I then trained as a presenter with my colleague and friend Isabel. We were then given the opportunity to have our own radio programme in February 2009.
Paul regularly undertakes television work…

I have had a varied career in show business. In 1969 after working at the London Palladium, I arrived in Manchester to work at the Golden Garter as commere / singer. I stayed for two years then went on the road all over Britain doing cabaret, theatre and TV. I was resident at Fagins Night Club in Manchester and Smithills Coaching Houseperforming in theme evenings. During the following years I was entertaining the troops for Combined Services Entertainments in Germany, Cyprus, Belize, N. Ireland etc. I also worked in the Rhine for Saga Cruises. I spent two years on a cruise liner in Miami sailing to the Bahamas. I’ve appeared in 8 pantos and done numerous TV work. I have been a supporting artist to many famous stage and recording artists over the years and although I am supposed to be retired, i still enjoy singing with my jazz trio and working with Paul on our show at WFM each week.
