This particular Monday Matters marks the last of ‘usual’ programming we will do until 2016!! Although I WON’T be playing ANY CHRISTMAS MUSIC TONIGHT! (well apart from beds & jingles!) -although the songs I will play ARE linked to Christmas.
Tonight I’m playing – Non-Christmas – Christmas music!!
All the songs I’m going to play were in the UK Top 20 on the 25th of December on their year of release! So, they may bring back memories of Christmas – but they were not Christmas songs! There are some crackers as well – who remembers…..The Barron Knights; Jellybean Ft Elisa Fiorllo; a cracker of a song by Chicken Shed?; Kate Bush’s – Rocket Man?; Godley & Creme? There are loads of great songs that were in the charts on 25th December – but that YOU WON’T hear on a loop in Asda, Tesco’s or Morrisons!!!
Also, instead of our featured artist -I bring you: Jason’s Christmas December Disco – where I play 4 1970s disco songs that were also in the top 20 charts on 25th December – including: Billy Ocean, Rose Royce, Donna Summer & MJ….
AND Let us not forget – The premiere of the latest Star Wars movie The Force Awakens, takes place in Los Angeles later. There will be a Star Wars – NOT IN THE NEWS…special between 7pm and 8pm.
After Jason’s Christmas December Disco; Kyra brings us this weeks music news (the last of 2015) and then our Roving Reporter Bonnie Britain files her latest report about a MoleculeArt event in London’s South Bank Oxo Tower – where she drank cocktails and sprayed all different types of paint on to canvas as part of an art exhibition.
In the final hour it’s my last interview of 2015 – which is with the author, blogger and writer Lisa Wilson (aka Juror13). Lisa has blogged from various trials and writes her articles from the perspective of a juror.
Tonight we discuss the life and trial of Oscar Pistorius and how he shouldn’t of been at the Olympics at all – but he bullied his way on to the ticket. Lisa has met the family of Reeva Steenkamp and will discuss the continuation of the work that Reeva was embarking by her mother June. The foundation seeks to help and protect women from violent men or relationships. Oscar Pistorius – the man he really is – is after 9pm (GMT).
