Circle of Hits
We play two songs each weekday, so ten songs in all.
Each song will be linked in some way to the previous one. It could be the singers share a name, or used the same producer, or simply share a birthday. And the song we start with on Monday, we end with on Friday, hence a complete circle of hits!
A daily look at a topical news story, with a couple of tunes to match the theme.
