Nice To See You, To See You Nice

This week we were joined by two very special guests – comedian Milton Jones and Hank from The BossHoss.

John interviewed Milton in the BBC reception right next to a very loud squeaky door and heard all about Milton’s forthcoming tour, what he thinks of Essex audiences and his request to have some Wham played on the show. Milton's playing Colchester Arts Centre on October 9th if you're interested in catching him on his tour.

Meanwhile Hank from German rock band the BossHoss joined us on the phone from his Essex B&B, exclusively telling us he was in his pyjamas, cowboy boots and watching the Antiques Roadshow. It doesn’t get much more rock’n’roll. We played some of their covers of classic pop songs and also heard their latest single, an original track Last Day.

We also discussed the return of Strictly Come Dancing and revealed our Strictly Top 5 songs:

1.       Come On Arlene - Dexy's Midnight Rumbas

2.        I Won’t Let The Sun Tan Go Down On Me – Nik Kershaw

3.       Tess Me Why I Don’t Like Mon-Dalys - The Ballroom Rats

4.       Get Your Dixon - Missy Elliott

5.       I Can’t Help Forsything In Love With You - Elvis Presley

Not quite making the top 5 were:

Born to Rug – Bruce Springsteen
99 Red Ballrooms – Nena
