The Head Honchos at BCB entrusted us with the task of seeing in the New Year, and somehow we managed not to break anything (although Betty Bird did inadvertently knock the needle from Emma Bob 3’s Nadine Shah record when playing with her Hello Kitty Christmas gifts). We played a lot of good music between 11pm and 1pm and you can pretend it’s midnight all over again by listening to part one and part two via BCB’s nifty podcast thingy. (A parental advisory warning – there are a few sweary bits post midnight). And we did the typical end of year round up thingy by chucking in a few 2013 favourites as well as tips for 2014.
A HUGE thank you to everyone who sent in requests and suggestions!

If you tuned in – big thanks! If not, and you feel you can endure yet more Christmas music (but not the supermarket variety) you can listen here. It was rather like a real Christmas family gathering, as my sister, Emma from The Bet Lynch Mob, joined me in the studio and I told her off a lot. And where else would you hear Wonder Women save Santa with a Tiara? Who needs TV soaps!
