RADIO 2 – STEVE WRIGHT’S NON-STOP OLDIES – 3pm Friday 16 May 2014

I was so pleased to be able to choose the Non-Stop Oldies on the Steve Wright Show on Friday 16 May 2014.

Many of you have emailed to say how much you enjoyed my eclectic selection from the early 70s and the place these songs have in my musically formative years.
