27th November 2010 - Christmas lights and the multi-talented Christmas pudding!

Click here to listen again to the interview

Mark Reed joined me this morning to talk about next Thursday’s Lighting Up Brentwood town centre, which he’s been organising, but for which he paid credit to lots of other people who’ve been working hard to make sure that it’ll be great fun for all the family. Phoenix FM will be compering the celebrations, full details of which are listed under our Events Guide – a packed programme is lined up, including a roller skating Christmas pudding!

My clues to the Stuck in a moment quiz were that it was the group’s biggest hit, reaching number 2 in 1985, and that at the time of this hit the group had piscatorial connections.*

My not-so-cryptic Where am I? clue to a location somewhere in our area was “The name of this place recalls a cruel death.”*

Track listing:

Black Box – Ride on time
Script – Nothing
Katrina & the Waves – Walking on sunshine
N Sync – I want you back
Sam Sparro – Black and gold
Twin Sister – All around and away we go
Beatles – Revolution
Moby – Porcelain
Duran Duran – Please please tell me now
Savage Garden – To the moon and back
Cyndi Lauper – Girls just want to have fun
Mel & Kim – Showing Out (Get Fresh At The Weekend)
Pixie Lott – Mama do
Killers – Human
Moloko – The time is now
Pink – Raise your glass
Maximo Park – Graffiti
Pet Shop Boys – Together
Fragma – Toca’s miracle

*The answer to Stuck in a moment was Kayleigh by Marillion, the piscatorial connection referring to lead singer Fish. Where am I? was William Hunter Way, named after the 19 year old Brentwood Protestant martyr who was burnt at the stake for refusing to attend Catholic Mass and accept the doctrine of transubstantiation. Well done to Mark Reed for solving that, and for pointing out that the memorial near Wilson’s Corner doesn’t actually mark the precise location of Hunter's death - that being the site now occupied by Brentwood School, founded just 3 years later.
