It was a jam packed show today and the last five minutes I had to talk nonstop whilst David Worrall sorted out the music. I said to David it was a hard thing for me to do and he just looked skyward and said you spend more time talking than anyone else. I had to agree, he was correct.
My guest in the studio today was the very talented and totally mesmerising singer, songwriter, product and author, Ben Markus.
Ben came in to play a few tracks from his new album Further Down the Road. I ended up playing three tracks off of the album. Ben is also a keen motorcyclist and unfortunately had a very bad accident last year damaging his hand. He has managed to get his guitar playing even better than it was before. Shows dedication and he said that the acupuncture worked a treat.
The Markus Band is a mix of funky blues with a mixture of reggae and a hint of rock. To hear more go to www.themarkusband.com
Everyone in the chat room really enjoyed the interview and to the regular boys and girls who join me every single day I thank you for the input. Shebott, Carlos, Parasource, Mel, Dan, Mawer, Con, Karren, Kizza, Gemma, Invisible and the rest.
Bryan Powis and partner Yazz turned up in the studio today. Yazz said that I am funny and Bryan replied “yeah she’s well funny”. Thank you Yazz for your support, Bryan sod off 😉 Bryan and I had a discussion on Pagazzling or Pajazzling and I cannot work out where one put the jewels?
Nick Mills popped in to talk about her show this Friday which is the Pixie Lott Top Ten favs. You can vote for yours on the Phoenix FM website.
David Worrall came in to take over for the excellent Drive Time show. I pulled out the memory stick and the music stopped. David and I had a chat for a few mins before he saved the day with a bit of S & M and I mean the single by Rihanna 🙂
Got home missed out on the sun as my house mate had taken the back door keys, so all I could do was to look out the french windows.
