Happy Saturday!

A nice cloudy, gloomy one today… perfect weather to do a radio show I reckon!

Here are the stories I mentioned this week:

On this day in music:

  • 1967, Jimi Hendrix, The Walker Brothers, Engelbert Humperdink and Cat Stevens all appeared at the Imperial Ballroom in Lancashire
  • 1973, Paul Simon set out on his first tour without partner Art Garfunkel
  • 1978, The soundtrack to Saturday Night Fever started an 18 week run at No.1 on the UK album chart

In your celeb birthdays, we have:

  • Naomi Scott, 24
  • George Clooney, 56
  • Tony Blair, 64

For your trip back in time:

A classic from Chaka Khan – I’m Every Woman. This is back in the days before music videos – so check out the audio below:

You’re up to date. I’m back on air next Saturday from 12 with some coverage of Basildon’s MayFest. Until then, have a great week, and I’ll speak to you soon.
