CO-HOSTING THE ‘BREAK UP CLUB SOUNDTRACK SHOW’ ON HOXTON FM…

A while ago I did a couple of spots on my local radio, Hoxton FM, on a show called Non Def. Here they are edited them down into little podcasts!

First up, here’s an edit of me co-hosting a special show devoted to my book Break-Up Club and its soundtrack on Spotify

 

From when you’re snug as a bug in your relationship (Private Universe), to first doubts (Do I Love You?), to breaking up (Don’t You Forget About Me). Then there are the lows, the pretend-highs, the rage, the Mega-Low points…and finally the mega highs. I Loved exploring all these tracks and feeling like a DJ for a day:) Thanks for having me Hoxton FM!

Here’s a guest-blog I wrote about my music choices, too…
