The Weekend Wake Up with Victoria Aburn

Saturdays & Sundays, 5am-8am

Up early for the morning commute? Just finishing a nightshift? Can't sleep? Whatever the reason you're awake before everyone else, Victoria is here every weekend, bringing you 3 hours of great music and plenty of fun and games to kickstart your Saturday and Sunday mornings!

From 7am, Victoria brings you loads of exciting new features.

On Saturdays, we play Unpopular Opinions, where you get the chance to send her some of the bizarre things you like to think! On Sundays, we play Random Question Sunday, where you get the chance to send in a question about anything you like!

She will pick the best few each week to create an awesome half an hour of fun! From 7:30am, Victoria reads out your guilty pleasures, with the final song of the show being a musical guilty pleasure, as chosen by you each week! 


About Victoria

Victoria moved to Portsmouth to study English & Creative Writing at Portsmouth University. She joined the team in October 2023, presenting Wind Down, as she was keen to get involved within the local community!

Launching ‘The Weekend Wake Up’ in April 2024, Victoria helps you kickstart your weekend and keep you company throughout the early hours!

Favourite Song - My Life Would Suck Without You by Kelly Clarkson. It’s one of my all time guilty pleasures, and I always crank the volume right up whenever it comes on!

Favourite Gig - A pop music festival at Wembley in summer 2023! It was such an unforgettable experience and featured some of the tunes that I grew up listening to, as well as some modern stuff! It was a hot day, but it was incredible!

Favourite Film - The Neighbour’s Window. It’s such an interesting film about appreciating what you have, and the story is just so beautiful! The ending always brings a tear to my eye!

Favourite Place in Portsmouth - The Spinnaker Tower! I went right to the top when I was little and the most memorable moment was lying on the glass floor with my brother! I also love it down in Gunwharf and along the seafront.
