Tonight we had a feel good music mix for a damp and dreary January Friday.
The mix included a first play on PhoenixFM for the new track by Sophie Griffiths.
We celebrated the birthdays of Neil Diamond and Jools Holland. Chris in Harlow, Amie in the studio, Patrick in Ingatestone and Nicola in Brentwood played along guess their ages. Nicola was closest with both artists.
The chart this week was from 1995. Cotton Eyed Joe was very popular in that year all across Europe. In Norway it was No 1 for 1 weeks and in Switzerland for 12 weeks. It was not quite that popular with our listeners!
