Order Matt's album? But I've only heard one track!

New commercial life is sprouting in Copnor Road

VERITY LUSH: Green shoots of recovery sprouting in northern Portsmouth

Firstly, I wanted to wish a happy new year to all my column readers. I hope you all had a lovely festive break. Now it's back to work and back to the routine.

One bit of music news for 2011 which got me laughing was to learn that, if you want to, you can pre-order the 2010 X Factor winner Matt Cardle's first album.

Why do I find this funny? Because the album hasn't even been completed yet!

Apparently it's not due out until September/October. Granted Matt has had a number one with, When We Collide, his cover of Biffy Clyro's, Many Of Horror, but we don't yet know what else he is capable of. I'm sure he will be fantastic, but what if you pre-order his album and end up hating his other stuff? Do you get a refund?

Of course 2010 saw Robbie Williams rejoin Take That. The crazy mad panic then ensued where people frantically tried to get tickets to the band's upcoming 2011 tour.

People were sat at their PCs ready for 9am on the dot, internet browser up and ready and fingers poised on the refresh button to try and get to the front of the online purchasing queue.

I'm waiting with baited breath to see if the boys can better their famous 'Circus' tour.

I suppose they are currently working away on ideas. I've heard they might have to 'bag' props now from the place where all the props are kept (apparently there is such a place!) before all other artists come along and put claim to the props they want for their gigs/tours etc. Whatever happens, I'm sure the fivesome will put on a great show.

I'm expecting good things from Bruno Mars this year as his single released in October 2010, Just the Way You Are, was extremely well received in the UK and US.

His latest single, Grenade, (out on January 9 ) is our single of the week at Wave 105. It's a lot darker than, Just The Way You Are, but I think it shows a different and deeper side to the singer.

Now on to reality TV! The X Factor and Strictly Come Dancing are over for another year and, just when I thought our televisions were safe, Dancing On Ice 2011 starts.

Don't get me wrong, I realise that those taking part in the show are very talented. It also always amazes me to see how some of the celebrities improve drastically as the series progresses (in fact some could even become pros and take a bit of a career change), but I still feel we have had enough of this format.

It's tired and I think we need to see something else. Plus, I don't even know who some of these celebs are on this year's show!

Catch Steve Power At Breakfast, Monday To Friday 5.30am to 9am on Wave 105.
