As I have announced a few days ago, last night in Prog & Roll’s we had the pleasure and honour to have Colin Tench as special guest in the chatbox. But he wasn’t alone. Gordon Bennet and Sonia Mota tuned in as well. Gordon did the orchestra arrangements and played a few instruments in Colin’s album; and Sonia is the artist that made the beautiful cover.
We had a big crowd listening last night, from many countries (and continents), such as England, Greece, Northern Ireland, Unites States and Mozambique to name a few.
During the 2 hours of the show, we played some parts of the interview we did with Colin a few days ago, we listened to 4 songs from his album, and altogether we talked about many things through the chatbox. I really think it was a fun and pleasant show, and everybody seemed to enjoy it.
We also did our usual music quiz, and two of our listeners won a copy of ‘Hair in a G-string’ that Colin had the generosity to offer as a prize. The winners were Benjamin Bell from England and Kudosarian from Northern Ireland. Congratulations to both of you, enjoy your new CD!
At some point near the end of the show, something funny happened, which totally blew my mind! At the beginning of the last part, I announced that on our next show on the 11th of December, we are going to have Shane Atkinson – the leader of the band Evership – as special guest, together with some of his bandmates, and a few seconds later he appeared on the chatbox! To be honest, I thought that someone was making jokes with us, but as it seemed Shane was listening to our show the whole time, and at that point he decided to join the chatbox. But imagine my surprise! Hahaha. And with that, you just found out about who we will have as special guest(s) in our next show.
I would like to say a very big thanks to everybody that tuned in last night and listened to our show. We are really honoured to have such lovely people from all over the world listening to us. A special thanks to Colin Tench for everything, and to Gordo and Sonia for joining our show. I hope that all of you enjoyed the music and the show in general.
Thank you all!
