He currently works in the IT industry (yawn) and he has a passion for all things pop!

He creates the best playlists ever and is pumping them out constantly.

Not Steve

Everyday is a Eurovision day with Steve and he will always stand up whenever he hears this.

Hayley – She’s Our Number One

Hayley has her own blog at Just Another Blog From A Woman but she very kindly takes time out of that to review every UK number one song for us.


Hayley was born in sunny Oxfordshire & now living in even sunnier Yorkshire and spent her childhood days pilfering polo mints from her Gran’s handbag and doing everything in her power to annoy her brother.

From 14 years old she developed an obsession with music that led her to become a leading Blur loyalist. The highlight of this was being sick on Damon Albarn’s adidas trainer once. Okay then…
