It’s always exciting being on air when a big news story breaks, even when it is something that’s been in the offing for some time. That was certainly the case with the announcement during this morning’s show of Jeremy Corbyn’s re-election to the leadership of the Labour Party, with some 313,000 votes against challenger Owen Smith’s 193,000. The months since the EU Referendum have been anything but dull in the world of politics – something that was set to continue regardless of this morning’s result!
Meanwhile it was business as usual with another Word Up! lyric teaser, when I asked if you could identify the song containing these lines:
I know what I want and I know that I need it right now –
Gonna take you on a journey to a far away place now.*
*Word Up! was Sky by Sonique, viewed by many critics at the time as a better song than her chart topper It Feels so Good earlier in 2000
