Hits and Memories

Monday to Thursday between 11 and midnight I play an hour of music from one particular year and give clues to the news and listeners can reminisce on this and phone, email or text in their answers just for a bit of fun.......

Well, things are about to change. What will happen is that the hits and memories will be as it always was but somewhere during that part of the show a song will be played that is NOT from the particular year being played and talked about. The challenge will be not only to guess the year but also name the odd song out.

keep tuned to 107.3 Abbey FM or listen on-line

Web site reviews

This week

Its been a really wierd week this week, I lost my password to update the blog so hence the lack of updates this week. The week started for me on Monday morning when my hard drive on my main PC decided it wasnt going to function properly anymore. Luckily I had everything I needed backed up on another hard drive with the exception of a few passwords for various sites.

For security reasons I don`t use the same password more than once and have a list of then for various sites. I hadnt backed up the details for the Abbey FM website. the myspace website and this blog. After many emails back and forth to various places I finally got my passwords reset so I can get back to normal now.
