The usual themes on this show are often reflective and quite deep so recording this was not only so much fun, but a bit of a refreshing change. Emma and I both said how rejuvenated and cleansed we felt after recording it – there was something really cathartic about playing loads of happy, powerful & nostalgic tunes! It was also a great show to end the year on – at a time where people can be feeling overwhelmed and a bit sad (fuck capitalism).
I generally played stuff that was either a power ballad, by powerful women or empowering – which meant a lot of 80’s and early 90’s tunes. I ended on Phil Collins – Another Day in Paradise, as this was the tune that made me want to do the theme in the first place AND IT’S AMAZING.
Thanks so much to E.M.M.A for being such a great guest and – as you’ll be able to tell – the best radio host ever!
