In the Pink with hot new summer music

by Tuned In, with kmfm DJ Andy Walker Friday, July 27 2012

As we move towards August, the sun finally starts to shine and the weather is hotting up – yes I am going out on a limb here and going to state we will be having even more sunshine – the tunes for this summer are very infectious.

Calvin Harris – the hugely successful Scottish DJ – has teamed up with Example for a new song, We’ll Be Coming Back.

It is like Rihanna duetting with Britney Spears. Between them Calvin and Example have come up with a melodic piece of dance music. You may expect the chorus to build up into more of a hooky affair, at the pace of Usain Bolt.

However, the pace doesn’t quite hit those heights and seems more like a 400m runner. I like how they have done this, though.

Pink is back! She has had her first child, Willow Sage, and has returned to the studio recording a new album. She even says she will be back on tour next year. Now I cannot tell you how much this excited me. She is only 32-years-old and I had the pleasure of seeing her live a couple of years ago – it was one of the best concerts I have ever been to.

It was energetic, full of colour and she even did a bungee jump during one song. Plus her voice is excellent.

The new single is Blow Me (One Last Kiss) and is another big sounding sing-a-long catchy Pink song. You could say it is classic Pink. She always sings from her heart too, reflecting on her personal life. It’s the first single is taken from her forthcoming sixth studio album, The Truth About Love.

Scouting For Girls gave us the infectious singles This Ain’t A Love Song, She’s So Lovely, Heartbeat and Elvis Ain’t Dead. They then went away to write new material and now they are bringing us their new song, Summertime In The City.

This track is so fresh that there is not much about it or their forthcoming album on line yet. So listen out for it on kmfm – we’re bringing you the hits first.

Soaking up the jubilee fun with great tunes

by Tuned In, with kmfm DJ Andy Walker Friday, June 1 2012

The jubilee weekend is finally here and Kent is alive with street parties and celebrations. The kmfm Street Team are out and about soaking up the atmosphere and joining in the fun, as well as other activities.

On Saturday, June 2, we will be at Dover Tattoo inside the Connaught Barracks, which is always packed with families.

You will also find us at Leeds Castle for the Open Air Cinema on Sunday, June 3. Expect plenty of Jubilee celebrations plus the classic movie Grease which will be screened in the evening.

On Sunday, June 3, kmfm we will also be at the East Malling Jubilee fair from 10am. Once you have got over the long extended holiday weekend, it will be time to think about taking part in Man on the Run. This is a 5k run for Cancer Research at Herne Bay on Sunday, June 10. This is being run by the kmfm presenters too. Want to join in and raise much needed money? Go to www.manontherun.org.

Hope you are enjoying the music on kmfm. We are now playing you the new song from Rihanna called Where Have You Been. It is another upbeat anthem that has you reaching for the volume up button. It is perfect for those summer BBQs.

Cheryl Cole, sorry Cheryl, has returned to music and to the red carpets. I love her and think her next album could be her biggest yet. The new single Call My Name was written and produced by Calvin Harris. It gets released on Sunday, June 10. It is an upbeat, dance anthem. It is taken from Cheryl’s third album, A Million Lights. Will it go to No.1? I think it could. One big tune that is coming soon is Maroon 5’s Pay Phone. These guys seem to have a totally new lease of musical life.

The fact that lead singer Adam Levine is a judge on The Voice US has helped propel his band even further but also their mammoth hit Moves Like Jagger has brought them a new army of fans. Pay Phone is a catchy pop tune about a romance that is no more. One can not mistake Levine’s voice and for all of the right reasons, it sticks out.

Songs with lyrics that come from the heart

by Tuned In, with kmfm DJ Andy Walker Friday, May 18 2012

More big hits are on their way this summer at kmfm.

Cheryl – she has dropped the Cole – is back with an infectious song Call My Name. It has been written and produced by Calvin Harris – the man of the moment in music production.

Calvin seems to be everywhere right now and has produced his own tune with Neyo called Let’s Go, which you can hear on kmfm.

This summer is all about the anthems. Tulisa’s hit single Young has a big dance sound. As has Jessie J’s new offering, called Laserlight. Her big voice echoes over a catchy chorus. Tune in to kmfm fto hear what I mean.

Plus, the singer-songwriter-feel to music is back... you know, when you listen to a song and you feel the artist has written it from their heart; their own experience?

I’m thinking tracks by the likes of Adele, James Morrison and Jason Mraz. Well, Paloma Faith is starting to feel like one of those artists.

Her single Picking up the Pieces is clearly a song written from her own life, about being in love with someone still embroiled in a past relationship.

It will grow on you and its 'beatiness’ makes it a steering-wheel tapper.

kmfm is out and about this week. If you are near Queenborough in Sheppey on Saturday, May 19, come along and see the kmfm Street Team at the opening of the new Queenborough Corner Garage. Grab yourself a kmfm car sticker and you stand a chance of winning a prize.

The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee is fast arriving and we will be out in force across the county, of course. We want to know who is having a royal party.

If you are, let me know and the kmfm Street Team could well turn up. We will at least give you and your party a big mention. Email andy@kmfm.co.uk. Speak to you on your way home.

Shopping sprees and catchy hits

by Tuned In, with kmfm DJ Andy Walker Monday, May 7 2012

There is so much coming up across Kent with kmfm.

kmfm will be giving you the chance to taste the brand new Pinkberry yogurt which launches at Bluewater. You could also be winning a shopping spree.

That is a lot of winning, but there is more. kmfm wants to invite you to a party night we are having soon at the fantastic themed restaurant Smith and Western in Tunbridge Wells.

I hope you are enjoying the hits we are playing on kmfm. Now there is even more of them as we are playing you a new band called fun. They are from New York and have produced an extremely catchy tune called We Are Young. It has already gone to No1 in the States and is already top three here. It is very alternative and stands out immediately. Listen out for it.

Tulisa not only will be back as a judge on the next series of the X Factor but also she has finished her first solo single and it cries out “summertime”. Called Young it is a big Ibiza-sounding dance song which will have you reaching for the high volume. The first few times of hearing it you ask yourself who it is because we have not really heard Tulisa sing solo.

The catchy hits continue with a new offering from the Scissor Sisters. Only The Horses is the first single from their forthcoming album. Only The Horses is produced by Calvin Harris. He and Scissor Sisters’ front man Jake Shears worked on Kylie’s Aphrodite album and they have got together for this new single.
