With 2016 drawing rapidly to its close I took the opportunity on this week’s Feelgood Saturday to dig out a few songs I’ve particularly enjoyed listening to this year along with some favourites of my fellow Phoenix presenters – including This Girl by Kungs vs Cookin’ on 3 Burners, Honeyblood’s Sea Hearts and the version of The Living Years recorded by The London Hospices Choir and Paul Carrack (which included representatives from St Francis). It’s always hard each year to pick not just a favourite track but also album but it’s a lot of fun and I always enjoy seeing the wide variety of music tastes on the station captured in words. You can see all our choices on our Presenter Picks page.
