Tuesday Drive Playlist April 12, 19 & 26

I've done the show on Active six times now, and I'm starting to feel more comfortable. I'm no longer pressing the wrong button, or playing the wrong song and I feel much more confident there. Just this week I got a number of phone calls from listeners wanting to engage in discussions about something I had said on-air, which is great. Just as I am getting used to Radio Active, Radio Active's listeners are getting used to me.

Sometimes I'm not really sure what to say on-air and I end up tripping over my words. I've long since realised that I am not one of those 'personality' radio broadcasters. I hate talking about myself on-air and it feels really unnatural to me. I mean, who cares?? So I talk about the music instead. I hope that is what listeners want to hear and I think the knowledge of the music I play is my strongest asset.

It's been a little while since I've posted a playlist from my Tuesday Drive show on Radio Active, so here are the one's I've missed.
