very Saturday there is a dangerous animal on the loose! It’s our Lamsie – along with Shannon, Chloe and DJ EJ to see you through the afternoon!
Kicking off the show we have bangers “Sexy and I Know It” by LMFAO and “This is What You Came For” by Calvin Harris ft Rihanna. Call us old fashioned, but that’s how you start a radio show on a grumpy Saturday afternoon!
What’s the biggest thing we have done in this week? Well, Chloe and DJ EJ have both been to see Beauty and the Beast in the cinema and DJ EJ has a little fact for us. Josh Gad who plays LeFou in the film is related to one of his friends! Amazing! Shannon shared the fun she had at Newport City Radio’s All-Nighter the previous Saturday! This was her first all-nighter and she ended up co-presenting 3 out of 6 shows! And our Lamsie has been having some car trouble! He is selling his boy racer Honda Civic for a more sensible, less sporty car. He thought he found the one! A classic white Ford Fiesta with crazy low mileage! But the car has been pimped with BLUE RACING STRIPES! Poor Lamsie!
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 KP - GO!
Chloe – Are they female? YES!
DJ EJ – Is she a singer? YES!
Chloe – Has she released anything recently? YES! Yesterday in fact!
DJ EJ – Has she got black hair? YES!
Chloe – Has she performed on TV lately? ... Probably!
Summary – Initials KP, female singer with new single and black hair, she is Hot n Cold, she likes Fireworks and she Kissed A Girl and she liked it. It can only be...
Time for the Extreme Track – the song that shouldn’t be played on the radio but we play it anyway! This week we have “Funky Town” by Lipps Inc. Chloe and Shannon were quite happy about this one and started talking about Shrek behind the scenes... Lamsie can’t believe his ears!
DJ EJ’s Reggie Selection!
Every week, our other resident DJ shares a selection of 3 Reggie tunes! This week we have 7-minuter “Every Day is Just a Holiday” by Ruddy Thomas & Trinity – a very appropriate title for a Bank Holiday weekend! We also have “Spell” by Sylvia Tella and “Man In the Hill” by Burning Spear.
International Dance Day!
Today was International Dance Day according to our website! So we shared our favourite songs to dance to! Lamsie went for “The Music Man” and starting re-enacting the dance for us in the studio – great RADIO content Lams! DJ EJ chose “Star Trekkin’” which had mixed reactions in the studio. Shannon agreed but Lamsie didn’t saying that he’s fed up of hearing it after playing it lots of times when he’s DJing! Shannon chose the classic “Time Wrap” – you can’t not dance along to that song!
25 Years of DJ Lamsie!
This is the part of the show where we go back in time – all the way back to 1998 where we celebrate our Lamsie’s 25 year long career as a DJ! We take you back with some 1998 bangers and Shannon and Lamsie dish out some facts about the year! Here are the throwback tunes we played!
