I Bet Lynch You Look Good On The Dancefloor.......

This week we were joined in the studio by all round entertainer Abi Roberts, once described as the British Bette Midler. We heard about the new album she’s recorded in America, the time she met Bette in Las Vegas and asked has Bette Midler ever been ever called the American Abi Roberts?

This week’s news stories included the burglar caught by police when he decided to log on to the computer in the house he was robbing to check his Facebook status and the drink driver who decided to plough into his local supermarket in a Rolls Royce when they failed to deliver a bed he’d ordered. Did he never consider giving them a ring first?

And in the week that scenes from Coronation Street were cut for being too raunchy, we announced our Coronation Street Top 5:

1.       I’m Always Touched By Your Presence Deirdre – Blondie (or should that be Blanchie?)

2.       The Rovers Return of the Mac – Mark Morrison

3.       Hilda Ogden’s Nut Gone Flake – The Small Faces

4.       Alpha-Bet Lynch Street – Prince

5.       I Wish I Could Be Like Curly Watts – The Kinks


Marvin Gaye and Kim Weston – It Takes Two

Moby – Extreme Ways

Sugababes – Red Dress

Duffy – Mercy

The Killers – Romeo and Juliet

The Osmonds – Crazy Horses

Shakira – She Wolf
