This morning I have been to BBC Coventry and Warwickshire to play live on the Annie Othen show. Her producer rang me yesterday and asked me to join the Christmas party which would feature cocktail tasting and some Christmas food. I was only too pleased to agree.

I picked up Rachel on the way and headed into town to find a parking space. We parked up and walked in the rain up to the BBC building. We met up with Amrit who was part of Annie’s team who welcomed us and made us a cup of tea which is always a good start! We went in to the studio and set up and met up with Annie. Rob who was a head chef and Robert who was a cocktail maker were also on the show. We got to sample a few sips of cocktails and some freshly made mince pie (well Rach did as they weren’t veggie!! boo!!!). We played Jingle bells, White Christmas and Joy to the World during the last hour of the show. It was great fun meeting the team and I now feel that Christmas has fully started!  You can listen to the show for the next 7 days on IPlayer HERE. We start about 2 hours into the show! Hope you enjoy Christmas…. x
