Drive 8th - 12th

Good to speak to the guys Colin and Andy from Destiny of Theatre on Drive on Thursday putting on JB Priestly's Dangerous Corner at the moment - it's the final night tonight (Saturday). They didn't want to reveal too much in case they gave away too much of the plot which would not be a good thing, but it was great to speak to them about the production in general and what they have planned in the future.

Also spoke to Tom the lead singer of straight lines who are supporting Brentwood's big group Inme on their tour at the moment - he divulged the great secrets of gigging such as a beer and bangers and mash pre-gig meal and they're supporting the Automatic soon and going to the US so good luck to them - check them out at

And we went through our Valentines Day facts for the week as well. I'm sorely tempted to extend Barry White week to a second week, with a Barry song every day next week as well. Maybe, maybe not - anyway we learnt how Verona still gets a thousand letters sent to Juliet of Romeo and Juliet fame every year - and teachers are the people who get the most Valentines cards. Also had some good Hit Headlines with Lessons in love level 42 and all you need is love for Valentine's day - and Wax - bridge to your heart and Embrace my weakness is none of your business for the continuing John Terry saga amongst the good ones.

Let me know though what stories we can cover or what related songs we can play - or if you have anything locally going on do get in touch - tune into Drive next week 3- 7.
