Here's Friday's Drive in a nutshell in case you missed the show... and what a show it was!
First of all our look at the midweek charts provided a fairly accurate reflection of what the weekend's countdowns had in store. Bruno Mars climbed back to the top of the singles after exposure on the weekend's X Factor, whilst a remastered blue album of the Beatles couldn't match up to the new release from Kings Of Leon.
Speaking of X Factor, Girl Friday Steph was on hand to make us all jealous with her account of sitting behind the judges on last Saturday's reality show... as well as providing details on local events and general assisting-ness in the studio (is that a real word? Not sure).
Having been away all week for a short break in Caister, we made sure Friday's show was guestmoungous (again made up I think?). Local author Jacky Rom popped in after visiting her old school Gidea Park Primary to lead a workshop there. She updated us on the Starr stories (www.allaboutstarr.com) and her vision to turn the books into a screenplay.

Very exciting was the arrival of multi-talented vocalists Heather Hayward & Roy Hamilton. Heather was a member of mid 1980s pop group The Cool Notes who had a string of chart hits in the UK between 1984 and 1986. The band, who formed in South London, consisted of seven members of both vocal and instrumental talent. They are best known for their UK number 11 hit, ‘Spend The Night’. The duo gave us an insight to their current projects including an exclusive play from Roy’s forthcoming album.

Phew! That was a busy four hours. We’ll do it all again every day next week so make sure you tune in between 3pm and 7pm Monday to Friday. Have a great weekend!
