Happy Saturday!

It’s Easter Saturday which is kinda weird because it feels like I’m on air on Sunday… alas, I am NOT complaining. Here’s to the 4-day Weekend! Anyway – back to this week’s show:

Here are the stories I mentioned this week:

On this day in music:

  • 1964, The Beatles filmed at The Scala Theatre in London for their forthcoming movie ‘A Hard Day’s Night’
  • 1967, Jimi Hendrix, The Walker Brothers, Cat Stevens and Engelbert Humperdink all appeared at the The Odeon in Blackpool
  • 1967, Nancy Sinatra and Frank Sinatra started a four week run at No.1 on the US singles chart with ‘Somethin’ Stupid’. They became the only father and daughter act ever to score a No.1 single

In your celeb birthdays, we have:

  • Emma Watson, 27
  • Seth Rogen, 35
  • Emma Thompson, 58

For your trip back in time:

It’s overcast and the sun is trying so, so hard to get through the clouds. Only one thing can help lift moods… and that’s a 90s track! This week it was Edwyn Collins – A Girl Like You. Check out the video below:

Right, that’s your lot from me. I’ll be back in your ears next week; but until then, enjoy your looooong weekend – and have a great week!
