Tuesday was mammoth in the studio guests-wise. Nikki from Saturday's In The Mix popped in to tell us about her meeting Pixie Lott, which we'll look forward to hearing on this weekend's programme. Then Mike Jones from the Thurrock Court Players talked of the demise of audience numbers at amateur dramatic productions. His group play the Thameside Theatre this weekend (details are on the events guide).
With England looking to make it three wins out of three in their Euro 2012 qualifiers, Simon Owen reported live from Wembley for us as the team prepared for their clash with Montenegro. And with Keith Brown away, Alan Jefcoate from the Essex FSB made his Phoenix Drive debut to discuss the week's goings-on in the world of local business.
As always, our "Girl Tuesday" Rebecca Clarke was on-hand to keep us updated with the latest showbiz gossip. Since attending BrentwoodUrsulineConventHigh School from the age of 11, Rebecca has completed her GCSE's and A/S levels and is currently studying English, Music Technology and Psychology at A2 level. She is now looking to take a gap year and further her interest in radio. In today's focus on our studio assistants, here's a little more about her likes and dislikes:
Favourite bands/artists
Snow Patrol, Beyonce, The Killers, Tinie Tempah, Dizzee Rascal, Paulo Nutini, Robbie Williams, Westlife.
Favourite singles/tracks
This could take a while... Snow Patrol - Chasing Cars, Crack The Shutters, Run, Chocolate, Signal Fire. Beyonce - Listen, Irreplacable. Dizzee Rascal - Holiday. Example - Kickstarts. The Temptations - My Girl. Frank Sinatra - My Way. John Denver - Leaving On A Jet Plane. Cee-Lo Green - Forget You. Luther Van Dross - Dance With My Father Again. Bonnie Tyler - Total Eclipse Of The Heart. Cyndi Lauper - Girls Just Wanna Have Fun. Tiffany - I Think We're Alone Now. Jennifer Hudson - And I'm Telling You, I'm Not Going. Etta James - At Last. Robbie Williams - She's The One.
Favourite albums
Snow Patrol - Up To Now. Glee. Professor Green - Alive Till I'm Dead. Beyonce - B'day, I Am...Sasha Fierce.
Favourite books
I'm very particular about books, there are only a few that stand out for me. Twilight (series). Inkheart (series). Alan Carr - Look Who It Is! John Steinbeck - Of Mice And Men.
Favourite TV and films                                                                                                                                                                                                             TV generally has to make me laugh or get bored of it very quickly. especially if it's a series, so most of my favourite programmes are comedies. Friends. Inbetweeners. Simpsons. Family Guy. Eastenders (I know it's not hysterical but can't exclude it).
Anything I could quote from and could watch endlessly without getting bored. Meangirls. The Simpsons Movie. Spiderman (series). Twilight (series). Grease. 13 Going On 30. The Holiday.
One other thing I love
English weather; unpredictability is great! Who wants to live in a predictable sun/rain country? Perhaps that's why I have a weird obsession with winter clothing (umbrellas and wellies); got to be prepared!
One thing I really hate
Bad hair days (I know it's petty, but still).
