I love Desert Island Discs and that’s why I leapt at the chance to participate in Radio Newcastle’s potted version, My Tunes. I recorded my memories and opinions this week with presenter Lisa Shaw.  I had to choose five songs from the past 40 years that made it into the UK Top 30 chart.

Will P J Harvey be one of My Tunes?

After much anguish I settled on a motivational track for Monday, a song with memories attached to it, a “guilty pleasure” and I had to dedicate a ditty to someone. My final choice was a bangin’ choon for Friday to kickstart the weekend. What fun. I love listening to and reflecting on classic songs.

I couldn’t possibly reveal my choices here. You’ll have to listen and let me know if you agree with me! My Tunes will be aired every week day next week after 11.30am starting on Monday 30th September. You can listen live or to previous Lisa Shaw shows here
