I did two ‘shout outs’ for the same girl - 17 years apart

Have your say

Apart from the 4.30am alarm call, I do enjoy covering the breakfast show.

After hosting one for so long, I suppose it comes naturally to me.

Monday brought back how long I’ve actually be doing it. I started hosting breakfast shows in 1994 on the Isle of Wight and by 1996 I was hosting what was the Power FM breakfast show, which I did until 2007.

This week I read out an e-mail request for an 18th birthday and was reminded I did a ‘shout out’ for the parents when she was celebrating her first birthday back in 1998.

Cher was in the charts with Believe and Steps were the big draw at that summer’s Power in the Park.
