Tonight we featured three tracks from The Shack. The album features music from the film and also songs inspired by the themes of the film. Paul Buckmaster, who died on 7th of November, worked in pop, rock, classical and country music, orchestrating the tracks. His nearly fifty year career included working with Elton John, The Rolling Stones, Guns & Roses, Carly Simon, David Bowie, Michael Buble and many others.

About Patrick Sherring

As a child I listened to the pirate radio ships, particularly Radio London on 266. I loved the romance of the djs playing the latest music for the listeners to hear. After most of the pirate stations closed in August 1967 I used to listen to Fabulous 208 Radio Luxembourg, the continuing Radio Caroline, Radio North Sea International and Radio 1. I particularly enjoyed listening to radio in the evening and at night. One of my favourite shows was Late Night Extra in the early days of Radio 1. All kinds of guests would just turn up and be part of the show. As a listener radio should feel like a friend is talking directly to you. I dreamed of being on the radio for many years. In 1988 I began on Hospital radio with Radio Enfield in north London. I had my own request show and used to commentate from Spurs and Enfield F.C. home games. I was also part of the Radio Enfield Roadshow team, taking part in many outside broadcasts. Now I am delighted to be on Phoenix98FM, where I have had a Friday show since May 2011. On the show there are a mixture of musical genres. Often there are guests giving lengthy interviews on a wide range of topics. There are also some live music performances. The little boy's dream has come true. @RevpatrickS

    Dear Patrick,

    Please would you play on your next show “Cold December Night by Michael Buble”, or if that is not possible, any song done by him will be fine.
