Special programmes featuring Michael Buble, Dionne Warwick and Katherine Jenkins are being broadcast over the Christmas period by Smooth Radio.
Michael Buble will host three daily shows on the national station on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and Boxing Day whilst Dionne Warwick talks about her life in music and Katherine Jenkins plays some of her favourite tunes on Christmas Eve.
2013 marks 50-years since Dusty Springfield launched her career and in a Boxing Day hour-long documentary those that knew her well, including Tom Jones, Mary Wilson of the Supremes and Marianne Faithfull, celebrate her life. Then “Those We’ve Loved” pays tribute to some of the great artists we’ve lost in 2012 – from Whitney Houston, Andy Williams and Robin Gibb to Donna Summer and The Monkees’ Davy Jones.
Real and Smooth Radio Group Programme Director John Simons said: “Smooth’s millions of listeners are in for a real treat over Christmas as we welcome a host of legendary artists together with some of today’s musical favourites onto the station.. Michael Buble will provide the perfect accompaniment for three consecutive festive evenings on Smooth, providing listeners with a relaxing hour of festive favourites.”
