THE FIRST DRIVE HOME IN THE LIGHT

As poor old GARY CASSERLEY is not too well, I found myself in his place tonight “GETTING YOU HOME”.

After a truly fabulous early spring afternoon it was great to play some absolute classic songs just fit for a sunny evening, at the end of the first day back at work.

As Gary was indisposed the format and music were a little different but we kicked off with Bryan Adams and Mel C with their belter “WHEN YOU’RE GONE” followed by Joe Cocker’s very soulful “YOU CAN LEAVE YOUR HAT ON” which we dedicated to anyone who took part in yesterday’s all nude golf episode on Southend seafront!

We then had a few current releases, “MONEY” from Missing Andy, “CHARLIE BROWN” by the fabulous band Coldplay and “WILD ONES” from Flo Rida and Sia.

Returning to the 1980’s we heard Philip Bailey’s “WALKING ON A CHINESE WALL” which preceded an absolute zonker from Katy Perry – “HOT N COLD” and the Doobie Brothers with “CHINA GROVE” and then it was back to 1967 for The Beatles with “ALL YOU NEED IS LOVE”. The final songs in the first hour were “STRONGER” from Kelly Clarkson, the Arlo Guthrie classic, “CITY OF NEW ORLEANS” and “SAME JEANS” from View.

The second hour of the show opened with “YOU AINT SEEN NOTHING YET” from Bachman Turner Overdrive, George Harrison’s “WHAT IS LIFE” and Don Henley’s “DIRTY LAUNDRY”.

The Squeeze classic, “TEMPTED” was up next followed by “PRAISE YOU” from Fatboy Slim. We then calmed things down a bit with “YOU RAISE ME UP” from Westlife and Stevie Nicks with “SECRET LOVE”. The Baby’s stormed in next to ask “ISN’T IT TIME”. Boston were experiencing “MORE THAN A FEELING” then along came Journey with “DON’T STOP BELIEVIN” and we wound the show up with “WE ARE GOLDEN” by Mika and the Commodores with one of my all time favourites, “MACHINE GUN”.

I hope that the music helped to ease your journey home especially if you were trapped in any of those notorious “hot spots” on the A12, A13, A127 or M25. All being well Gary should be back next week with all his regular features. Meantime I will be back on my usual slots tomorrow at 2 and Saturday at noon. Have a good week and don’t work too hard.

All the best,

Scott
