Recommended Posts

Mika will be on BBC Radio2 at noon on January 1, 2019 .





New Year's Day


Mika plays some of his favourite tracks from the most iconic songwriters of all time and shares his own stories on why these tracks mean so much to him.
He chats to Louis Walsh, the former X Factor judge and manager of bands including Girls Aloud and Westlife about his plans for 2019 and what music he loves to listen to at this time of year. Mika also speaks to Amy Wadge, who is best known for co-writing with Ed Sheeran, about her life as a Grammy award winning songwriter. Amy tells Mika how she and Ed wrote the multi-million selling song 'Thinking Out Loud' and how it changed her life. She also shares stories on which artists she's working with at the moment, including country megastars Lady Antebellum in Nashville, a city where she spends a lot of her time.
