Singin' in the Rain

Simon Grundy in the morning

Here’s what you missed........

Well last night, Simon and I had a mate date at the Empire. We went to see Singin’ in the Rain, and it was brilliant!! I’ve never seen the film, so I didn’t know what to expect. We were transported to 1927 when the era of silent movies was coming to an end and brand new talking films were making an appearance. Former ‘Steps’ star Faye Tozer won over the audience, playing the role of a silent movie star whose voice doesn’t quite match her beauty, and she was hilarious. From the costumes to the amazing choreography it was ridiculously entertaining; the type of show where you can’t help but constantly smile while watching it. The best and most anticipated part had to be when the main character Don Lockwood sings the title song and from nowhere it starts raining on the stage! I’m just glad we weren’t sat in the first few rows or we would have been drenched! Simon kindly informed me that Maxwell Caulfield who plays the character of RF Simpson will be coming into the studio tomorrow for an interview! He’s known for appearances in Dynasty, Emmerdale and Casualty; however I remember him as Michael Carrington in Grease 2. Now I know most of you will probably think it was one of the worst films made, and no doubt Maxwell will think that as well, but I don’t care. I’ve always loved it, and enjoy it 10 times more than the first one. I’m really looking forward to meeting him; I hope he’ll sign my Grease 2 CD??

Ashleigh revealed in the showbiz today a list of songs that you love and hate listening to when you’re driving. The number one song you love to listen to most was Don’t Stop Believing by 'Journey'. We wanted to know if you agreed, and a few of you on Facebook actually suggested better songs; Born to be wild and Summer of 69 to name a few. My personal favourite has to be either Sweet home Alabama or Bohemian Rhapsody, which actually came second on the list.

Tune in for tomorrow’s show, it’s going to be action packed. Not only will we be joined by Maxwell Caulfield but we’ll also be announcing the winner of our football competition for the trip to Manchester next week. You’ll still be able to phone up and give us your funny anecdotes until 8.30am and we’ll announce the winner before 9am. Good Luck!
