Question: What do you do when all the festivities and partying of the holiday season is over?

Answer: You tune into a brand new radio station!

Yes, as of 2nd January talkaboutpopmusic will be hitting the airwaves so your 2016 weekends will now be a non-stop pop party!

The station will be officially launched on Saturday 2nd January with a special request show/blog party where you can request your favourite songs to be played and share posts from your blog in a similar fashion to what I did when I relaunched the blog in May. The standard schedule for all other weekends will look something like this:


00:00 – 12:00 – Pop Start: Get your weekend off to a poptastic start

12:00 – 13:00 – Everything Eighties: Only 80’s songs from a different year each week

13:00 – 14:00 – Nothing That’s Not Nineties: Only 80’s songs from a different year each week

14:00 – 17:00 – What’s New? New songs from the past few months

17:00 – 18:00 – Broken Records: Songs from an artist who has broken chart records

18:00 – 19:00 – Then & Now: songs from an artist’s old stuff mixed with their new stuff

19:00 – 00:00 – I Do Feel Like Dancing: Songs to get you in the dancing mood


00:00 – 12:00 – Artist Of The Week: Songs from a specific artist

12:00 – 13:00 – The Now Project: Songs from a different Now That’s What I Call Music compilation album each week

17:00 – 18:00 – STOP! LOOK! PLAYLIST! – A countdown of my top ten most played songs in the past week

18:00 – 19:00 – The Official UK Top 10 – Back where it belongs on a Sunday evening!


Listen in the shower, listen while you bake, listen while you do the ironing, listen while you drive to the shops, listen, listen, listen.

Please join me for the launch party from 12:00 GMT on Saturday 2nd January – bring a song, bring a blog post, bring a friend and I’ll publish the post of how you can join in on the morning of the launch. In the meantime, leave a comment below if you think you will join the party!
