We are almost there- So, as this is the last show before Christmas day and as its likely to be the weirdest Christmas for most of us, I thought I mentioned my Phoenix 98FM presenter pick for 2020, with my album and single choice for the year; The latter being the hardest as I played over 300 new singles this year and my favourite is influenced by loads of things- so I guess a few people may feel disappointed.
Still, my criteria are simple- I only pick unsigned artists that I had played, songs I’ve played more than once, those songs that got positive comments from you the loyal listener and also, those artists who social-media share my show in support; blackmail?.
Oh, you will need to play the supplied podcast to hear who I actually picked as my album and single for 2020!!
If that revelation was not scandal enough I wanted to hear on my chatty bitwise, your favourite ‘TIER’ based puns- Holding back the tiers / Tiers are not enough, to name two…
