This week’s show covered all sorts from Toy Story 4, to Fleetwood Mac announcing a tour to David Hasselhoff and Christopher Biggins starring in the Southend panto. We also continued with our quest for a brilliant week with PMA – a large group effort to ensure that each listener of Phoenix FM has a positive and productive week ahead.
I talked about the Hunger Games, a blockbuster triology, becoming a stage show and how a life-size version of Jennifer Lawrence, the lead character in the series, has been given Gold at the Cake International baking competition.

As I love of penguins – I found out about ‘Robo Penguin’ this week, a small remote-controlled vechicle that has been disguished as a chick. This has allowed researchers to monitor the behaviour of wild penguins much less intrusively than a human can.

And lastly, and on the subject of penguins I mentioned the new Christmas ad for John Lewis. The cover song that features on this year’s advert is ‘Real Love’ by Tom Odell, the original by John Lennon. If you are yet to see the ad, be warned you may catch yourself welling up – you can find it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iccscUFY860
