The Music Machine says: Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers!

Hi everyone

I hope you can join me for the Music Machine this Saturday at the usual time of 7 PM UK, which is 2 PM US Eastern!

The theme this week? It's all about alliteration. Song titles where each word begins with the same letter. Let me give you some examples. Sunshine Superman. Pipes of Peace. Maggie May. You get the idea. If you can think of song titles which fit into that category, I'd like to hear them! You've got a day to think about it.

The Music Machine, the Show That Will Not Cost You an Arm and a Leg.

Hi Everyone

I look forward to being back in your company on Saturday at 7 PM UK time, 2 PM US Eastern, for the Music Machine on the station where great music matters!

Lots of features to come, but the body of the show will be about, the body! Songs with body parts in the title. So if you'd like someone to cry on your shoulder, or maybe you think you've got hot legs or lucky lips, I'd like to hear about song titles with parts of the body in them.

Saluting the Pirates and the Motown Story this Sunday!

On Sunday, we have two special programmes for you.

At 4 PM, as part of Team-FM's Docking Station comprising music-based documentaries, we begin the Motown Story. What is good about listening to these documentaries is that you get to hear from artists and groups of the time, some of whom are now no longer with us. In part 1, you will hear from artists such as Berry Gordy, Barrett Strong, Mary Wells, Joe Billingsley and Marvin Gaye.
It's a fascinating well-narrated story!

Then at 5 PM it's Our Time, the show where we celebrate music of the 60's and 70's.

Our Time is Always a Good time!

Hi everyone

Do you remember the show Our Time, celebrating music of the 60's and 70's? It's been away for a few weeks but it is now back, Sunday at 5 PM UK time, 12 PM US eastern.

This week, we have the music history, looking at musical events from previous years on 6 august. We'll also be going back to this week in 1971, and reviewing the charts, and hearing movie clips, commercials and news archive.

The Music Machine says: Greetings Music Lovers!

Hi everyone

I hope you can join me for the Music Machine this Saturday at the usual time of 7 PM UK, 2 PM US Eastern. As usual there's a lot to get into the show!

This week, I'm looking for your songs with greetings or salutations within them. I'm thinking of songs such as Lionel Richie's Hello, or Train with Hey Soul Sister! Anything that could be used to address people when you meet them or leave them.

The Music Machine: Too Much, Too Little, Too Late!

Hi everyone

As usual I will be on air for the Music Machine this Saturday at 7 PM UK time, 2 PM US Eastern, I hope you can tune in!

The format of the show is similar to last week's. We have a theme running throughout the show, songs containing the words much, little and late in the title. If Johnny Mathis and Deniece Williams can come up with a good 70's classic, I'm sure collectively we can think of some excellent songs to play with those words in the titles.

The Music Machine is on the Side of the Angels!

Hi to all

The Music Machine is back on Saturday at 7 PM UK time, 2 PM US Eastern, on Team-FM,

For a good part of the show, I'll play music spanning the decades and it will be open house, so anything you would like to hear I'll gladly play for you. I will also have the Vinyl Countdown, playing a song direct from a record, and this week, the single I'm playing is on Motown!

The Music Machine, it's all about the songs!

Hi everyone

I'm back with another edition of the Music Machine this Saturday on the station where great music matters! It's at 7 PM UK time which is 2 PM US Eastern.
I hope you can come along!

In hour 1, we'll go back to a great year for music, 1982, and hear some of the songs to cast your mind back to that year.

In hour 2, I'll focus on music tracks which contain song titles in the lyrics! There are quite a few songs which refer to other songs.

The Music Machine is Begging You for Bird Seed!

Did you know that three quarters of people sing the wrong words to popular songs?

A staple of radio for decades has been a feature of Misheard Lyrics, where you think that the vocalists are singing different words to those which are correct, often leading to comical results. But genuinely, many people think the nonsense lyrics are the correct ones.

The Music Machine, Double Decades!

Hi to all

I did a similar show a couple of weeks back and people seemed to enjoy it. So this week on the Music Machine, we will be going back to 1986 in the first hour and 1976 in the second. I'll play songs which do not get radio airplay generally from both years and tell you about them too. Feel free to choose a song from one of those years if you would like to!

The show can be heard on Saturday at 7 PM in the UK and Ireland, that is 2 PM US Eastern.
