Last Forever Sunday

This was my last show for a while as I am heading off to New Zealand to travel.

Played tonight:

Maverick Sabre- No One
The Maccabees- Pelican
Mull Historical Society- City Lights
The Futureheads- Heatbeat Song
Black Lips- New Direction
The Vaccines- Wetsuit
Plan B- She Said
Ellie Goulding- The Writer
Frank Turner- The Road
The Ting Tings- Hang It Up
Arctic Monkeys- I bet you look good on the dance floor
Jack Johnson- Breakdown
Bombay Bicycle Club- Leave It

The clues to this weeks guess the lyric were:
The song is from the album ‘Final Straw’, the band headlined at V festival when Oasis pulled out and Leona Lewis has covered this song.
The answer was: Snow Patrol- Run

In this weeks ‘You heard it here second’ I looked at Scott Ross’ show Bygones. On his show he had local author Frances Clamp in to discuss the history of the Brentwood Ursuline School. The school is an all girls school, founded in the 1900’s, which used to be run by nuns. So I thought that The Eurythmics and Aretha Franklin- Sisters are doing it for themselves, would be a good song to end this feature.

As it is my last show, I chose S Club 7, Say Goodbye as this weeks cheesy song.

Keep listening to Phoenix FM, I off to the other side of the world, bye!

Festive Forever Sunday

As it was the week before Christmas, Forever Sunday went all Christmassy, with excessive use of the Phoenix FM Christmas jingles and beds! We played Christmas tunes such as:

Mariah Carey- All I Want For Christmas Is You
The Wombats- Is This Christmas?
Elton John- Step into Christmas

Other songs played this week:
Emeli Sande- Daddy
2:54- Cold Front

Natasha Beddingfield- These Words
Athlete- Westside

Muse- Unintended

Answer to Guess the Lyric- The Waitresses- Christmas Wrapping

In this weeks ‘You Heard it Here Second’ we looked at Elliott Smith’s Saturday evening show, The Late Night Lock In. Elliott is into similar music as me, so it was easy to find a song I liked from his playlist. I went for Olly Murs- In Case You Didn’t Know.

Have a very happy Christmas, look forward to you listening to my show in the New Year.

This week on Forever Sunday we took a look at what went on at the Lactic Fallout, at the Secret Nuclear Bunker. I spoke to some of the runners and spectators at the event, as well as Tracey, the organiser.

The Lactic Fallout

Early Sunday morning over 100 runners took part in the Lactic Fallout, a wet and muddy 7 mile cross country run and obstacle course across farmland near the Secret Nuclear Bunker in Kelvedon Hatch. The event was a great success and most people finished the gruelling race smiling! Phoenix FM’s Helen and Stephen headed to the event to hear from the organiser and supporters and to find out why the runners decided to take part in such a crazy event. You can hear about all the action at the race by clicking below:

[audio:|titles=Phoenix FM interviews at Lactic Rush (Helen, 06-11-2011)]

The race included several obstacles including a water slide, wading through a smelly pond, a hay stack and trenches approximately 6 feet deep. Photos of the race including runners tackling some of the obstacles can be seen below:

The race was in aid of St Clare’s Hospice and part of the entrance fee will be going to the hospice. The race was organised by Tracey Alexandrou and she has organised other similar obstacle races. The other similar races are being held next year in May, these are, the Lactic Rush, an 8 mile obstacle race and the Mini Rush, the children’s race.
