Taylor Swift, Little Jackie, Ava Leigh..............Love It!!!!!!

Sunday  July 27th 2008

Souled out I was again today ...having sweated in my white socks over Soul Inspired on Saturday evening......I had a little trouble this morning with the easy the date for a start and then pressing the wrong (or indeed forgetting to press the right) button. Now some presenters may class this as a ‘technical difficulty’ but to me it’s the failure of the operation of the right index finger. This should be on high alert at all times and should be coupled to an engaged brain otherwise disaster lurks behind every door.

I started with Annie who sang I know your Girlfriend Hates Me and following a short rant about rush hour in Shenfield last Thursday introduced my featured artist for this morning. This was Taylor Swift who’s a Country Singer.....quite big in America. She has now released Taylor Swift (European Release) frankly I don’t understand the title unless for tax purposes she needs to separate her US and European income and therefore is thinking ahead in this age of barcodes and computers.....blackberries....strawberries??? and even i things!!! 


Any way the Taylor Swift Tracks featured were

The Frank Sinatra song reminded me of firstly one of last weeks breakfast recommended websites. This was where you delve into magazines and newspapers from around the world. This I’d done however recognising that it was Sunday morning and that means you’re having your breakfast and not wanting to upset that routine i felt it best to share the story about Doctor Fish being used in the art of pedicure in the US....early. I did and you can read the full story at and go to the Chicago Tribune.

Then........If Breakfast had a record of the week it would probably be the..........Having spent weeks trying to get my hands on Little Jackie’s track The World Should Revolve Around Me from her Album The Stoop.....It turned up in our A list this week........I did resist the urge to play it week???
