We can’t help but feel like we know Pandora Christie already. As a KISS Presenter & DJ, Pandora rules the radio and we couldn’t wait to ask her exactly ‘how she got here’.
Sum up yourself and you job in 2 sentences?
I love my job! Essentially, I go to work to play the music I love, dance around the studio and talk to millions of people –I’m having the time of my life at the moment.
What has been the inspiration behind your career?
My passion for music and radio has always been the driving force behind making me to want to do better and progress in my career.
What has been the best piece of advice you’ve been given?
To never give up. A “no” is simply a way of saying you need to try harder, that’s all. The best challenge in life is turning a “no” into a “yes”.
What piece of advice would you give to others wanting to follow in your footsteps?
I’d advise everyone to get as much experience as you can in any field you choose to pursue a career in. But with radio, I’d suggest getting experience from all types of radio stations. Whether it is local, community or hospital radio, you’ll learn the skills you need.
It helps a lot to learn how to produce your own show and how to make your own demo.
Don’t rush, take your time to perfect your trade 🙂
You’re a new addition to a crayon box, what colour would you be and why?
Bright blue because it’s my favourite colour! Blue gives the impression of calm and tranquility. But the bright shade feels more fun and playful.
What was the last gift you gave someone?
A giant treat ball with a squeaky tennis ball inside…it was actually for my dogs.
What inspires you?
For the KISSTORY hour during my show on KISS FM, when we start mixing it’s about bringing back those memories. I want to take people back to a certain point in their life that puts a smile on their face and think “wow I remember that time when” – that is the power of music!
My inspiration for this comes from real people having real life experiences. Everyone has a story to tell and that’s the beauty of it.
What is the difference between right and wrong?
This is definitely subjective, it depends on an individuals beliefs and morals. Especially as one persons right can be another’s wrong.
When have you been most satisfied with your life?
On New Years Eve this year, I climbed Mount Toubkal in Morocco. When I was half way up, it was 5.30am, pitch black and freezing cold but I looked out and felt an overwhelming feeling of satisfaction from what I had achieved.
If there was one thing you could say to your 5 year old self, what would it be?
