Reflections when I can't sleep...

Hello my Marlifers

There  I was wide awake, hearing the birds singing, hearing my hubby snoring and reflecting on my life now more so when I am happy to say I will be 50 next year, and I am working on myself to have inner peace and more. My therapy sessions have helped me hugely to re-evaluate many aspects of my life and I must confes

I would like to create a better version of myself. And yes, I am working on it.

I do not aspire to be a role model because I have too many imperfections for that, but I would like to be an inspiration. I would like to touch people, and I am humble when I say this.

I would like to continue to be true to who I am and that means recognising my feelings and emotions to embrace them, accept them and nurture them, but I do not want to cradle bad feelings.

I do not want to be argumentative, I want to be understanding not only for myself but also for those around me. Being comprehensive is better than being narrow minded 

I would like to keep a good sense of humor because I don’t want to take myself too seriously. At the end of the day, after a smelly poo

💩 we all need to wipe our arse like the rest of humanity. This is called being human. Therefore, we should appreciate our biological needs 👍

I would like to continue to positively influencing my husband John Compton who is the star ⭐️ that shines the most in my universe. Honestly, he is the person I love the most with every single cell my heart made of.

I would like to cultivate more that spark of compassion that’s exits in me to try to make a better contribution to the world 🌎

And I do not want to be a prisoner of hate or bad feelings, I want to always be set free by love and feelings that would contribute to my well-being.

And finally, I would love to tell my mammy, Carmen, who is in heaven, that she did a great job with me. You were a fantastic mum and your love still lives in me ❤️ I miss you as much you deeply loved me.

Thanks for reading  and remember life and love are wonderful ❤️

A Year On Radio - WoooHooo


Hello my Marlifers

A year ago, my radio adventure started. 

When my now Executive Producer, Marian Shanley, asked me to take over her radio show, The Power Of Dreams Show, I coul not believe it. I have to be honest and say I was a little bit nervous as I did not have radio experience at all. All Marian knew about me was my cheerful posts on Facebook singing and dancing in my kitchen.

I accepted the challenge and worked hard to produce what I was expected. Of course, her guidence and mentorship have been pivotal for me to my voice on the airways. When I say I worked hard, I would say double hard because I have a very strong accent, sometimes I tend to speak too quickly and some people ask me to slow down. So yes I had, and still have, to pay attention to those small details to speak clearly and be understood. But you know what? I love it.

I put my first takeover together, it aired and the very same day I was invited back for a second takover. Then for a third then for a fourth one until I was offered a regular takeover once a month. So I became a part-time radio host for Dublin South 93.9FM.

One of the highlights of being part of The Power Of  Dreams Show was interviewing one of my idols, Gloria Estefan. I am still pinching myself over it. I was an incredible opportunity and experience I will never forget. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Kevin Murnane for giving me such a great  opportunity.

I continued doing my slot once a month, and little did I know I would be offered to have my own radio show. When the offer was made to me, I could not believe it and still can't believe it, but anyway that's how The Marlon Show happened in less than a year.

I am so happy and so grateful. Marian Shanley thank you for puttin me in this position. Peter Rice who is station and program manager, thanks for believing in me and my talent. To sound engineers Allison James, Al Murphy and Keith Stars, you guys are genious. To Luke Wills, our social media guy, thanks for alwasy having on time the promo for every show.

But more importantly, thank you to my listeners for your unconditional support and for your love. It has been one of the joys of my life, and...

Thank you to my husband, John Compton. Baby thank you for your support and patience. You listen to me going on and on and on and on hehehe. Thank you, you know you are the center of my universe.

The Marlon Show airs every Thursday al 11:00am on Dublin South 93.9FM and after it becomes a podcast on

My Soul Searching Journey - Blog updated

Hello my Marlifers

I am currently on a soul searching journey to become a better person, and to forgive myself for some of my wrongdoings I have incurred in the las year or two, or even my wrongdoings in life, and have left some feelings of guilt in me.

This journey started a couple of weeks ago, and I recorded the below two clips over Easter. So far so good.

I am working on Myself, by Myself and for Myself...and I am happy to be doing so because it is very important.

Thanks for watching

Podcast of radio show

Hello my Marlifers

As you might have noticed, I have had Marlife neglected for the last while. I have been very very busy and I feel I have no time in the day to to all the things I have to do and I would like to do.

I would like to remind you all that Marlife is still alive - which is why I would like to share the podcast of @TheMarlonShow

Also as you can see below, the podcast on @Mixcloud performed really well and I was, and still are, delighted.

I hope you can enjoy and feel free to tell me: What do you think?

What is it about?

Hello my Marlifers,

This article was first published on my LinkedIn, I hope 2021 is treating you well so far, and I hope after the Coronavirus vaccine is fully rolled out, we will be full of recoonections, joy and happiness.

This post is to say a MASSIVE thank you to everyone who have been listening to my radio show, The Marlon Show, on Dublin South 93.9FM. It has been a great adventure so far, and this adventure will only be getting better and bigger because we have been investing time and effort to make the show a significant one in the community radio sphere.

Tu put it in simple words, if you ask me what The Marlon Show is all about, I must refer to the spot-on defitinion our brand sponsor from Slingshot Graphic Desing, Luis Aviles Ortiz, who is the man behind the show's art-graphics and who explains that...

"The Marlon Show is a radio broadcast in South Dublin that is an alternative to mainstream radio, a voice for those under-represented or excluded, through training  and access to radio broadcasting facilities. The Marlon Show in particular is a show of music, optisim and passion. The Marlon Show brand is reflected on its colour and form as modern, playful, passionate, energy and filled with optismism."

And he is absolutely right. I would like to add to his explanation that The Marlon Show is a show for you to Live, Love, Laugh, Sing & Dance. It is a platform for you to be who you truly are. And more so, it is also a platform for all those who need a media outlet to amplify their voice and showcase their craft, whatever that might be. The show is for you and about you, our beloved audience, and for those who would like to convey a message to create good through the airwaves.

The format...

It is quite simple. It is an hour-long show that airs every Thursday at 11:00am on Dublin South 93.9FM. However, you can listen to it on your mobile device, too. The show is a mixture of, of course, music and interviews with special guests. It also has two segments, one called "Emerging Talents", a segment for those who are starting to put their name out there through their art, whatever that artistic vein might be. The other one is called "The Me Nerves Moment With Marlon" - which is basically a member audience sharing an anecdote that is engaging, entertaining and, for the most part, funny.

I would like to think that the show is an oasis where love, happiness, valuable information, joy and fun are found.

Once the show has aired, it becomes a podcast: MarlonDublinSouthFM
