I’m usually on RNZ once a month to have a chat about some new albums. But now and then I present features on the show too.
I followed that up with a chat about Ringo Starr and played some of his best Beatles drum bits and a few of his solo singing hits. That was fun too.
But then, I had the chance to talk about Prince. What to say about one of my favourite artists of all time? In just 40 minutes. I could talk for, erm, 17 Days about Prince. So I decided to look at some of the side-projects, collaborations and songs he’s written for other people.
And then it was to covers you didn’t know were covers.
Then a big chat about Dolly Parton. And just this week, and most recently, I was asked to put together a list of some songs that were banned from radio. So we talked about those tunes and played them…
Had a bit ramble about Fleetwood Mac recently and I talked all about Abbey Road in celebration of its 50th Anniversary
The second to last one this year was on “The Worst” songs by “The Best” bands. It was a lot of fun.
