Don't touch that dial

In the immortal words of Frank Sinatra 'Saturday night is the loneliest night of the week'. I didn't think it was possible for me to become any more like a Nanna, but turns out it was, and possibly still is. Since I've been on holidays I have taken to listening to Magic 1278 AM, which, in my opinion, is a fantastic radio station. It claims to play "The best songs of all time" and really does, the ads are few and non-offensive - mostly about pre-paid funerals and dentures, and there are no obnoxious DJs making prank phone calls. It has great segments, like Frank and Friends at 5.00 on a Sunday, the Late Night Lounge from 10pm every weeknight (usually the program I fall asleep to) The Classic Countdown which is on before the Late Night lounge, and my favourite - Saturday Night Party Time. In the past few weeks I have found myself, every Saturday night, in my bed listening to Saturday Night Party Time. It's tragic but I love it. It's so comforting and relaxing and because my radio is really old it's really static and I really feel like I'm in the 50s/60s, it's like time travel! Right now I'm listening to Frank and Friends then I googled Frank and when he was young he was a real babe - in that kind of cigar smoking hat wearing dodgy New York speaking kind of way.
