I also used George Michael’s instrumental ‘Jingle’ on a couple of occasions throughout the show.
Next week’s show is on at 2pm on New Year’s Eve and I’m delighted to say I’ll be joined by Sophie B Hawkins, singer songwriter and creator of ‘Damn I Wish I Was Your Lover’, ‘Right Beside You’ and ‘Lose Your Way’ and some of my favourite music. Really excited to have her on the show.
