Hi Johnny! David Caldwell, part of the Sescot Radio team! Just to say thanks for the shows - I tuned in recently and heard a cracking track from Alannah Miles - 'Still Got This Thing For You' - and love it! I had never heard it before as I think most people, like myself, only know of Alannah's hit 'Black Velvet', itself a great track. Stay safe :)
That's me
