Lighting up the High Street

On this morning’s show we took a look ahead to what turned out to be a great afternoon of entertainment hosted by Phoenix FM at the heart of this year’s Brentwood High Street Christmas lights celebrations. Rob Jelly and Tony Smith did a brilliant job holding it all together on the main stage, ably assisted by Bob Simpson and other presenters, with some excellent performances by – amongst others – Leanne Louise, Edd Coates and our own Michelle Ward. As if that wasn’t enough we’ll be doing it all again tomorrow with the lighting up of Shenfield!

My clues to this week’s song that was acceptable in the 80s – a UK top 40 hit single that you probably hadn’t heard in a while – were that one half of this electro collaboration was out of his league, and this duet will always be together.*

*Acceptable in the 80s was Together in electric dreams by Giorgio Moroder & Phil Oakey
