We had a smooth music mix to end the week. This included the new release from Sophie Griffith – No-one else but you. Released today, the track is on the station A list. We played guess the age tonight related to today’s birthdays. Brendon and Nicola, Amie in the studio, Patrick in Ingatestone and Chris in Harlow. Once again Patrick was our winner, with Brendan a close second. The vintage chart this week was from 1975.
Tonight’s smooth playlist.
