Classicfm has excelled itself today. This afternoon Anne-Marie Minhall played two early favourites from Hayley, namely Quanta Qualia (Odyssey) and of course, Pokarekare Ana (Pure). They still remember her!
That is good news Martin - and Scala Radio too, they accidentally excelled themselves yesterday! At the end of Jack Pepper's evening "Culture Bunker" show, he read out a potted bio of Joni Mitchell and announced her singing her composition Both Sides Now. But it was Hayley's cover of it!
You can listen to his faux-pas followed by Joni... er Hayley ... here, planetradio.co.uk/scala-radio/player/80755743/ starting just after 1 hour 54 minutes in, the actual time was 8:54 pm yesterday evening. Ah the magic of radio but hey, the lad's still in his teens, perhaps the youngest DJ on British radio - and has probably never heard Hayley sing in his young life! Until last night
I'm glad they're continuing to play her music! I wonder if her visit to London was to let them know she was returning to the scene soon, so they would continue to play it. But I just realized that was more than a year ago!
