The shortest day – but only just!

The last Feelgood Saturday before Christmas – and the shortest day across the northern hemisphere! It certainly seemed like it too, with one of the gloomiest days in a long while making even today’s official 7 hours, 49 minutes and 44 seconds of daylight seem hard to believe. Another interesting fact that I shared on this morning’s show was that today isn’t the earliest the sun sets – that was a week or so ago – but this morning was its latest time to rise. I always like the thought that, from tomorrow, the days start getting longer again – although with December 22 seeing only an extra 2 seconds of daylight it’s not worth getting too excited!

It was good to be joined this morning by hopefully the newest member of the Phoenix presenter team, Adam Dyer. Listen out for Adam some time in the new year, when he’ll be sharing his professional and personal love of music, particularly jazz.

For this morning’s Word Up! lyric teaser I gave you these lines:

She can remember a time when she felt needed. If love was red, then she was colour blind!”*

*The Word Up! song was Savage Garden’s To the Moon and Back:Word Up – Savage Garden – To the moon and back
