There is a wonderful classical crossover show that is broadcast on a Welsh radio station that I enjoy every week!
The radio station is called Calon FM and is on 105.0 for local listeners in the Wrexham area of Wales, or can be streamed online through their website or apps such as Tune-In Radio.
The show is called “Classical Crossover For You”, frequently shortened to “Classical X Over 4 U”. It is presented by Jannie Rawlinson and airs on Sunday from 6 to 9 PM in the UK.
Hayley’s music is featured lightly on the show, but I intend to request a few Hayley songs be played next time! The show is very active on Twitter on @xoverradiocalon where people can request songs or chat during the show!
As I did with the show on KITC-FM and their CC show, I hope to arrange for the presenter to interview Hayley at some point in the future!
I've been following that station, particularly because it comes up in my twitter search for anything Hayley, and there's a Hayley fan from Germany who puts in requests for her every week. I think she normally does play Hayley every week. Not always what's requested, but quite often she does!
I really hope they're able to arrange an interview with Hayley. I still worry that she might have abandoned her old genre completely; her style and tastes have certainly shown a major shift since her move to LA and new relationship. I suppose the change from London to LA may have something to do with it, but the company she keeps seem to have a big influence, as well. I sometimes think, is this even the same person anymore? Many of her new friends, as well as Chris, are smokers and swear like sailors. She still rarely smiles in her pics. At least she was smiling on her wedding day.
Back to my point: I seriously hope we get an interview, and some answers about the album. I have a feeling in the pit of my stomach that any requests for an interview will be soundly ignored.
Thanks Joe and Libby,I gather that this Sunday is St. David's day in Wales. Well done on keeping the Hayley flag flying on HWI and in Wales where many of Hayley's most fondly remembered concerts took place over the years.

Well done Joe, even by making contact with them and mentioning Hayley will trigger the subconscious and they may act on it in the weeks to come. I think Hayley has a good loyal following in Wales. Might be a good time for Majesty or On the wings of time, but they may not have them..
