I have enjoyed my interviews by Helen Barnes, who has also reviewed several Go West shows. She's charming, fun, passionate about the subject and inventive with her questions. I wish her every success with the 'Loving 80s Music' website!
Thank you Helen for a fun interview! You are very personable, knowledgeable, well researched and ask great questions. I wish you the best success with Loving 80s Music website.
I love chatting with Helen. Her enthusiasm is irresistible.
Enthusiasm is a good description of Helen's personality, but that doesn't really describe it all. Helen is a perfectly insane journalist who reminds me not to take myself too serious. This makes talking to Helen less of an interview and more of a cosy chat. This is a very good thing. Graeme C WetWetWet X
It was a delight to be interviewed recently by Helen Barnes, at an 80s Weekender, at Butlins Skegness. She's great fun, very enthusiastic and knowledgeable about 80s music and I wish her every success with the 'Loving 80s Music' website.
This young lady was efficient, polite and above all fun (house) when she interviewed me!
Helen is not just a great journalist, but also a huge fan of the decade of decadence, which means that her enthusiasm shines through at all times.
Anyone who likes to re-run the fun discussing the good times of the 80's is fine by me.
@loving80smusic is as vibrant, colourful and fun packed as the 80's itself! Helen is always a joy to talk to and her enthusiasm and drive is inspiring! Thank you for your support Helen! Doc x x

You are always a real joy to talk to. Always so enthusiastic about your work. The first time we met was at an 80's weekend. Your review of the show was so positive. It is always lovely to meet up with you xx
The Fizz did a great interview with Helen. She was so much fun and really knew her stuff. She even admitted to appearing on Record Breakers, which, of course, I didn't remember! Looking forward to the next interview, Helen.

Loved my lockdown interview with Helen ~ Even on screen she has a great demeanor that is relaxed, engaged and we had a bit of a good laugh ! I've now subscribed to Loving80sMusic ! See you next time!

Helen's crazy enthusiasm and love of 80s music are legendary. Her interviews are great fun, whilst still respectful and knowledgeable. We worked together at the BBC where her determination and passion shone on air. I know Loving 80s Music will be a warm and affectionate tribute to a fantastic decade. Good Luck Helen!
