Chatting romance with Daniel Molyneaux

A #FeelgoodSaturday first for me this week with the first proper live performance since I’ve been running the show! And what a way to start!

Daniel Molyneaux first came in last summer and we played three tracks from his album and had lots of fun chatting – so much so that I invited him back to sing live. He performed two tracks from his album I’ll Be Waiting, which is out now. Daniel’s in the middle on the picture below, with his keyboard player Josiah on the left.

You can follow Daniel on facebook (@DanielMolyneauxOfficial), twitter (@SoundofDaniel) or instagram (soundofdaniel) and check out his videos on YouTube. The album “I’ll Be Waiting” is available on iTunes, tidal, Spotify and most other music download services. Plus he has his own website! To listen back to my chat with Daniel and his performance just click the link below:

Return of the Mac

This week’s show was a whistlestop adventure in cheesy, European feelgood: from a rave review of Mamma Mia, the show, to a look at the song we’ll be sending to Eurovision in Portugal in May – by way of the usual entertainment news and a very tasty Headliner… We crammed it all in.

The Brentwood and Billericay Plogging Club

On this week’s show we delved into the latest Scandi trend – something called “plogging”. We also chatted about (and barely contained our excitement about) those rumours of a Spice Girls reunion.

Plus we caught up on the latest goings-on from the world of entertainment, including why a nudey painting in a Manchester art gallery caused controversy this week.

Plus we had a bird-brained Headliner…

Holy Carp!

A slightly condensed #FeelgoodSaturday this week as both me and my guest suffered from traffic issues because of the Brentwood Centre’s annual carp show!

I still managed to squeeze a lot into those 100 minutes. In the entertainment news we talked about Reese Witherspoon’s three legs and looked at the Oscar nominations, as well as a first play of one of the artists hoping to represent the UK at this year’s Eurovision.

We also wrapped our brains around this week’s Headliner – so if you fancy teasing your brain then listen back here:

And after battling his way through the traffic George Redwood made it in for a chat ahead of his appearance on a brand new BBC One reality show called ‘All Together Now’.

George has just released his debut single, a cover of Michael Jackson’s P.Y.T, which you can see on YouTube or facebook (or in many other ways). Give him a follow on twitter for all the latest!

To hear George’s interview, including his brilliant single ‘ P.Y.T’, just listen back below:

A-GA-DON’T

On this week’s show there was a welcome return for 2018 for Headliner – the current affairs/ music quiz that plays you five mystery tracks that all have something in common – they’re all linked to a story that was in the news this week.

On top of Headliner we had the Entertainment news, including an update on the likelihood of a Sex & the City 3 film. We also chatted about the Brit awards, a Stranger Things wedding request and some of our favourite pop stars who have significant birthdays this year. Plus we narrowly avoided a Black Lace ambush!

A Brentwood bonanza

On this week’s #FeelgoodSaturday we had a Brentwood bonanza. I was joined by not one, but three guests in the studio, representing some of the finest businesses Brentwood has to offer.

First up was Tref Griffiths, creator of Clued Upp, a virtual murder mystery game that you play on the streets through an app on your phone. After success all over the country, he’s bringing it to Brentwood next month (on 10th February).

Listen back to our chat to find out a bit more about CluedUpp Brentwood, how you can play and where to get tickets. Tickets are on sale from Sunday 14 January so don’t miss out!

Then, after eleven I welcomed back returning guest Jacqui Duly, from Pussycat Lodge Trust. She brought with her this time, Dave, who looks after the lovable population of ferals at the Brentwood-based cat and kitten rescue charity. We chatted all things feline – from why it’s so important to neuter your cats, to the things you should think about if you’re thinking of getting a cat. So listen back if you’re interested in cats or in the great work this charity does.

You can also follow Pussycat Lodge on facebook and twitter, which I’d recommend if you like to look at pictures of cute cats.

Get the tinsel down!

On the first Feelgood Saturday of 2018 we thought we’d delve into the murky world of finance. This time of year we’re often thinking about how we can be better with money – because of a New Year’s resolution we’ve made or due to Christmas over-indulgence.

My guest today was on hand to help us through it. James Blower, founder of the Brentwood-based financial consultancy – The Savings Guru – was full of tips for getting your money in order, the best ways to save and even helped us understand what on earth a bitcoin is. You can hear the interview with James below and to find out more about the Savings Guru, visit their website here – where you’ll also find advice and a way to ask them any other questions you might have.  You can also follow them on twitter.

Elsewhere in the show, we looked forward to some very significant events and anniversaries in 2018, checked in on events in the local area and got a bit of an eyeful in the entertainment news…

The In-between

It’s that funny time of year between Christmas and New Year where you’re not quite sure what day it is, what meal you’re on, or whether you’re coming or going generally.

This week’s Feelgood Saturday is the perfect anecdote for those in-between blues – two hours of great music (if you don’t believe me, check out the track listing below), entertainment news and gossip. Topics covered included the New Year honours (arise, Sir Ringo!), why I’m taking a different approach to New Year’s Resolutions – and some of the other ways to spend the days in-between crimbo and January 1st.
