All this week James Ross presents another "Music of My Life" mini series, in which he spends 25 minutes each morning chatting to some of the great names of pop music, and playing their choice of songs. This time he'll meet singer, songwriter, and composer Paul Carrack. Once dubbed by the BBC as the “the man with a golden voice“, Paul’s had great success through the years as a member of multiple big-name bands such as Roxy Music, Mike & The Mechanics, Squeeze, and with the band, which first brought him to prominence in 1975, Ace. He wrote and sang their global hit How Long. He also sang lead vocal on Squeeze’s hit Tempted, and Silent Running and Over My Shoulder, which were big hits for Mike & The Mechanics. Not to mention his own solo hits, and song-writing for bands like The Eagles, Diana Ross and Tom Jones, amongst many others.
James joins Phil Whelan after 11 each morning from Monday to Wednesday, and then he will be flying solo on Thursday and Friday.

On Monday's Backchat, not Disneyland, and supermarket coupons.
On Wednesday, the government decided not to extend an option for Disney to buy a 60-hectare site next to the park.
Disney says it's extremely disappointed that the government has ended the option for it to buy the adjacent piece of land in Penny's Bay.
What should happen to the site? Move Ocean Park? Build houses? Sports facilities? Are you happy with the state of Disneyland ?
From 9:15am-9:30am we'll join by the Chief Executive of Consumer Council to discuss discounts versus cash coupon lucky draw by supermarket chains.
