The Weekend Wind Up – Saturday 14 July

Hi everyone!

Well, the football didn’t go our way but there is still loads to look forward to….like the summer, holiday’s, great weather and my show!

Join me on Saturday from midday for three hours of the best music, chat and a fair few laughs.

Plus this week I will be joined in the studio by Ian Scott, one of the finest and most in demand professional mobile DJ services in Essex who also manages a great business providing professional and challenging quiz evenings for all manner of functions – from Corporate events to celebrations.

You can find out more about Ian on his website –

Listen in and remember if you have any requests, or want to get in touch, email to get in touch!

Looking forward to your company on Saturday!

Who is Cassandra?! Listen and find out!

A couple of weeks ago, I was visited in the studio by Actress and Performer Andrea Sandell, accompanied by actors Dave Watts and Anthony Reddy, who came in with two colleagues to talk about their new project “Cassandra”.

It’s a suspenseful futuristic thriller currently being filmed in and around the borough.

You can listen to the interview with Andrea below and you can find out more from Andrea on Twitter @arsandell, Dave on @davewatts002 and Anthony @Reddy2act.

It was a great interview and they have some exciting projects lined up including a homage to the ever popular “Dallas” which is taking place on Saturday 11 August (my birthday!) on the terrace of Ingatestone Hall. This original production promises to be a fun filled evening and tickets can be purchased on the door at the bargain price of £10!

What a great show! – Saturday 30 June

Not my words – I’m far to modest, but the words of dear Joanie, who contacted me in the studio with her first EVER email that she sent. In her mid 80s, she has decided to go online and her first email was to request Queen’s “Radio Gaga” on my show.

Turns out she is a new listener and she likes what she hears – so I am doubly chuffed that she choses to listen to PhoenixFM and that I was the recipient of her first ever email!

Thanks Joanie!

I really hope all of you enjoyed yesterday’s show – it was a blast and made extra special by my guest in the studio, Screen Writer, Author, Director, Actor and Hurricane Dodger – Elaine Spires (pictured).  An inspiring woman with a fabulous back story. Who after spending some years in Antigua has come back to our great county.

To find out about what Elaine’s up to, which is perfect for anyone looking to audition for theatre school, get into acting through her creative Drama projects, any new or experienced public speakers or anyone wishing to learn Spanish, visit her website on

Tracks you would have heard played yesterday include:

The Detroit Spinners – Working My Way Back To You

Five Star – Brand New World

Alison Moyet – Invisible

Alcazar – Someday

Bucks Fizz – Are You Ready

The Blow Monkeys – It Pays to Belong

The Saturdays – Higher

George Ezra – Shotgun

Westlife – Hey Whatever

Bananarama – Preacher Man

Sophie Ellis Bexter – Heartbreak (Make Me a Dancer)

Plus much, much more.

Stay tined for the recording of the show which will be uploaded shortly!

In the meantime, I’ll see you next Saturday at midday for more great music, good chat and lots of laughs.

Have a good week!



This week’s Weekend Wind Up! Saturday 30 June

Hi there!

It’s been a couple of week’s since I’ve been in touch so apologies!

First off, thank you to all of you who have travelled with me from my usual Wednesday night show to my extended daytime show at midday every Saturday. It’s great that you have stuck with me and I appreciate it!

The new three hour show is going great guns and your feedback has been awesome – thank you for getting in touch! And special thanks to my new listeners who seem to be enjoying it as well.

This weeks show will be the usual mix of great music – which you can always expect from PhoenixFM – great conversation, opinions and a fair few laughs.

I’ll also be joined this week by my next special guest, details of which will be available shortly!

I really hope you can join me at midday on Saturday. It’ll be lots of fun!
