With James Brydges on News, Gary Scott on Travel Kevin Hatchard on Sport we woke up The “Time Zone” (East Berkshire, South Buckinghamshire, North Surrey and the Heathrow Area of London).
From 6am we got you into the day then we’ve got connect 3 between 7 and 8 where you needed to link three songs. Monday – Thursday the link was either in the title or the artist and on Friday, Factual Friday where the songs were linked by a fact.
Between 8 and 9 it was the Headline Hit. I gave you a Topical news story and we pick the best of your suggestions of the songs which fit with the Headline and play it before 9am
