Kicking off the show we have bangers 'Rhythm of the Night' by Corona and 'Feel the Love' by Rudimental. Call us old-fashioned, but that’s how you start a radio show on a beachy Saturday afternoon!
What’s the biggest thing we have done in this week? Well, Shannon has officially finished college and her and her classmates had a party in the studio... the TV studio in her college, not our studio! Chloe had been to a dog show that was held in St Julian’s before hot footing it over to the show! Lots of cute dogs doing tricks and eating pupcakes! Pawsome! DJ EJ had treated himself to a new piece of gaming kit from Game, an arcade stick! Everyone in the studio was lost at this point... What’s does an arcade stick do? And finally, our Lamsie celebrated his great nephew’s 3rd birthday! He got him a Paw Patrol toy which made his day – “This is the best birthday ever!” – how cute!
Celebrity I Unspy!
The silly little quiz that’s got Newport in a tizz! Lamsie thinks he’s seen someone famous wandering the streets of Newport, but he doesn’t because no one famous ever comes here! But nonetheless he’s excited to tell us so he turns it into a little game – it’s basically Guess Who for the radio! Don’t worry – we get to ask loads of questions! It’s okay – we have 60 seconds! This week’s clue is the initials SC - GO!
DJ EJ – Male? YES!
Chloe – Got black hair? YES... WELL, HE DID BUT NOW IT’S TURNING GREY!
DJ EJ – Does he wear shorts? NO, BUT HE DOES WEAR VERY HIGH TROUSERS!
Chloe – Does he drive a car? YES, PROBABLY A SPORTS CAR!
DJ EJ – Is he a singer? NO, BUT HE KNOWS LOTS OF THEM!
Chloe – Is he a presenter? ISH!
DJ EJ – Is he married? I DON’T KNOW BUT HE IS IN A RELATIONSHIP AND HAS A BABY!
Summary – Initials SC man with black-ish hair, currently talent spotting for a different reason, organising a recording studio, known for high waisted trousers, drives a sports car, has a baby and dabbles in presenting... kind of. It is...
Time for the Extreme Track – the song that shouldn’t be played on the radio but we play it anyway! Now we have three cheesy tracks on the show to get stuck in your head! Our first 80s track is 'Uptown Girl' by Billy Joel! Classic! The 90’s track it 'Tubthumping' by Chumbawamba! Who doesn’t love that one! And the last track from the noughties that is the ultimate cheesy song – written by the Bee Gees, sang by Diana Ross and covered by Steps in 2001, 'Chain Reaction'. Thanks for making Lamsie’s ears bleed Shannon!
DJ EJ’s Summer Soul Selection!
DJ EJ is back with his brand new Summer Soul Selection, getting us in that summery mood. First up we have 'Party All the Time' by Eddie Murphy – who knew Eddie Murphy has a music career! Next, we have classic banger 'Feel for You' by Chakka Khan! And finally, we have R Kelly with 'Bump and Grind'. If those tunes don’t get you in the mood for summer, then we don’t know what will!
There has been a lot of gaming stuff going on on our website with E3. We have rundowns of every E3 conference from Microsoft, Playstation and Nintendo just to name a few. If you are into gaming like a lot of our authors are, then we thoroughly recommend them! There has also been a new music review from Shannon; this time it is a review of an EP by YouTube musician Dodie. A great review for a great EP! We also had last week a blog to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the publication of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone!
Next week we have a lot coming up including Netflix review of Orange is the New Black Season 5; the weekly rundown of Doctor Who and a review for Nickelback’s brand new album Feed the Machine. Be sure to check out the website for all of these!
Firstly rugby and the British and Irish Lions gained a confidence-boosting win as their power hold against the Maori All Blacks in wet conditions. Leigh Halfpenny landed 20 points, all in all, kicked them into a 15-10 half-time lead with Liam Messam crossing for the hosts’ try.
Scotland also moved up to fourth in the world ranking with a 24-19 victory in Australia in Sydney. Duncan Taylor and Finn Russell scored first-half tries for the visitors. The hosts nudged ahead when Will Genia found a gap in the Scottish defence. Scotland responded with a try by Hamish Waton to make it two wins from two for new head coach Gregor Townsend.
As well as this, in the International Woman’s Rugby Series, England beat New Zealand by a score of 29-21.
And finally, in tennis, Great Britain’s Johanna Konta beats Slovakia’s Magdalena Rybarikova in the Nottingham Open.
Another brand new section to the show from Lamsie – a remix of some of the newest summer bangers... played through his laptop – shhh don’t tell Phillip! This week's tracks included 'Solo Dance' by Martin Jensen, 'No Promises' by Cheat Codes featuring Demi Lovato, the Spanish chart-topping 'Decpacito' by Luis Foni featuring Daddy Yankee and Sean Paul new track 'Body' featuring Migos.
