I wasn't going to do the comedy songs at the top of the hour for the 'new' show, but I wanted to pay tribute to Paul Shane so played a clip from Hi-De-Hi followed by his legendary rendition of 'You've Lost That Loving Feeling'.

We were pleased to welcome Ryan Thomas in for a live session, it was only organised a few days ago, but it went really well. He's a bit quiet and not very talkative which made me struggle with the interview, but with a voice as magnificent as his, the music does the talking!
