Drive - August 3-7th 2009, including Alex Roots, The Brents and the traditional family dinner!

This week on the show, I spoke to Mark Reed from Brentwood Theatre, about the upcoming 'Brents', the local equivalent of the Oscars, which will reward the superstars who have graced the Brentwood theatre's boards over the last 12 months.  Mark spoke with pride about his association with the awards this year, and looked forward to some very hotly contested categories....stay tuned to Phoenix 98 FM for all the winners and red-carper gossip (has anyone got a red carpet I can borrow?)

I also spoke to Alison Mitchell and Robert Opie, who discussed the traditional family dinner, and whether we as local residents like to and actually do gather around the dining table for our evening meal any more.  It transpired that we'd like to a heck of a lot more than we actually do!

On Friday, we were treated to a geuine superstar in the making visiting the studio, as teenage pop sensation alex roots mosied in to discuss her forthcoming headline gig at London's exclusive Barfly, her debut single, don't Stop Looking, and her influences, hopes and dreams.  She also declared Friday Chinese Night, was an absolute hoot and one of the nicest people we've had come into the studio, so thanks Alex!   If you want to hear the interview, simply click here! : http://www.phoenixfm.com/story/3011.php
