Hi everyone

Now the holidays are over, it's time to get back to the regular Music Machine this Saturday at 7 PM UK time, 2 PM US Eastern.

I'd be happy to play songs you would like to hear, but I have the usual features too. What are they? I know its been quite some time since we had them due to our special shows, let me remind you.

Compilation albums . We look at two various artist albums each show. This time, we look at Chart Hits 83, and I Love Disco.

Vinyl Countdown, playing a song from my vinyl record collection. This time, we go back to August 1961!

Throwing a New Year's Eve Party? We Can Help!

If you're planning a New Year's Eve party, you want the music to be the best. As your guests dance, eat the food and chat, the music has to be played non-stop and expertly mixed together to keep the beat going. And, it would be great if you could have a high profile DJ to put it all together for you, counting down those final hours and minutes to midnight!

The Music Machine: Good Vibrations, Radio Station Launch Songs

Hi to all

I’ll be live from South Wales to present the Music Machine today at 7 PM UK time, 2 PM US Eastern, featuring songs which launched radio stations in the UK.

The launch of a radio station here in britain was perhaps more important than it is now, but many people remember the first song to be played on their local station. Some reflect the geography of the area, others have a celebratory feel. but they're all good songs to hear, and that's what we're focusing on in this edition of the music machine, good vibrations, radio station launch songs.

Wishing You a Merry Disney Princess Christmas!

Who was the first Disney princess? Which character was the first Disney princess to attend a ball? Which was the first disney princess to be non-human? And who was the first Disney princess to change hair colour?

You may know the answer to some of these questions already, but you'll certainly find out, and hear many of the songs associated with Disney princess movies, if you tune into the show hosted by Lulu and I this Saturday at 7 PM UK time, 2 PM US Eastern, on Team-FM!

Hi everyone

Sadly Brian D cannot be on air this Friday for Welcome to the Weekend, so I hope you can join me, Brian Hartgen, for Ultimate 80's. It would be great if you did!

This isn't just a regular show playing 80's music, although that would be cool. It's also feature-filled as you would expect from us, including an 80's music quiz, 12 inch singles, remembering events which happened on November 24 from the decade, and we'll remember the movies through audio clips too.
