The Cat and Naomi Show

Colourful, engaging, fun and unique.

Colourful, engaging, fun and unique.

Show name: The Cat and Naomi Show

Presenters names: Catherine Ash and Naomi Puddlefoot

Show time and day: Every other Sunday, 2-4 pm.

What type of music can we expect to hear on the show?

An eclectic mix of music of good quality and presence. We try to play music from as many genres as possible, so our listeners can experience and explore new artists and tracks they might not have heard before, and also reacquaint themselves with old favourites.

Why do you like this music?

We just like music we think is good!

What is the format of your show?
We don’t really have one, we just let it take its course.

Why should we listen to your show?

We cater to most music tastes, and by deliberately juxtaposing certain tracks, we hope that the music can be listened to with a ‘fresh’ pair of ears. You should hear some off the cuff remarks, witty banter, music of good quality and most of all, expect to be entertained.

How did your show come about?

We took the plunge!

What goes on behind the scenes in the studio?

Giggling, twirling on the wheely-chairs, pulling faces at each other (and the computer screen when we don’t get any emails) oh, and serious public broadcasting!

What has been your best on air moment?
None specifically, but when the show seems effortless and you get good feedback, that is always satisfying.

What has been your worst/ most embarrassing on air moment?

The usual – playing the wrong tracks, being occasionally lost for words and praying you’ve just played the ‘clean’ version of a track!

Who is your favourite artist?
Naomi: If I had to pick just one, it would be Prince because of his talent and diversity.
Catherine: Mine would be Neil Young because to me, his music is timeless.

What is your all time favourite album?
We both agree that the sign of a good album is one that when listened to, evokes a personal memory or emotional response. (Also see presenter profiles).
