Real and Smooth to air Hit Factory Live

Real Radio and Smooth Radio will broadcast the Christmas Hit Factory Live concert created by Pete Waterman, on New Year’s Eve.

Smooth presenter Pat Sharp will host the two hour special, which will feature a special duet by Kylie Minogue and Jason Donovan.

Pat himself will also feature, performing his 80s hit(s?) with Mick Brown.

Musical acts will include Steps, Jason Donovan, Bananarama, Sinitta and Rick Astley to Dead or Alive, Pepsi and Shirley, Hazell Dean, 2 Unlimited and Brother Beyond.

Production company Bounce will produce the show, which will broadcast from 6-8pm on Smooth and 7-9pm on the Real Radio Network on New Year’s Eve.

Real and Smooth Group Programme Director John Simons said: “This is the perfect soundtrack to get your New Year’s Eve off to a cracking start. I defy any child of the 70s, 80s and 90s not to be transported back to one of the most memorable musical eras as soon as they tune in. We’re delighted to be exclusively broadcasting this one-off Hit Factory Live concert.”

The concert, in celebration of the 25th anniversary of British pop label PWL and the writing partnership of Stock Aitken Waterman, was postponed in the summer due to adverse weather and is now taking place at the O2 on 21st December.

Hit Factory Live organiser Pete Waterman – founder of PWL – hosts Friday Night Fever on Smooth Radio.
