Rachel on the Radio!

Rachel has already proved herself at singing, acting and TV presenting, so why not add radio DJ to her CV?

Having co-presented 'Christmas at the Musicals' with Niamh in December 2008, Rachel took on 'The Late Show' on BBC Radio Ulster last Friday with some style.

What could be better than presenting a show where you can play all your favourite songs? And it's fair to say that I was personally delighted with many of Rachel's selections.

Kicking off with two of my personal favourites, The Manics 'You Stole the Sun from my Heart' and Kim Carnes classic 'Bette Davis Eyes', Rachel treats us to two hours of great music.

Full track list:

Manic Street Preachers You Stole The Sun From My Heart
Kim Carnes Bette Davis Eyes
Rufus Wainwright Cigarettes and Chocolate Milk
The Beatles Oh Darling
Cheryl Cole Fight For This Love
The Monkees Daydream Believer
Brian Kennedy Life Love & Happiness
Eva Cassidy Wade In The water
Elvis Costello Peace Love & Understanding
Carly Simon You're So Vain
Bobby Darin Beyond The Sea
Sarah McLachlan In the Arms of an Angel
Tina Turner Better Be Good To Me
Stereophonics Handbags and Gladrags
Elvis The Wonder of You
Stevie Wonder Superstition
Van Morrison Bright Side of the Road
Lionel Richie All Night Long
The Drifters Saturday Night at the Movies
James Morrison Undiscovered
Michael Jackson Man in the Mirror
Rolling Stones Plundered My Soul
Jerry Lee Lewis Great Balls of Fire
The Police Every Breath You Take
Annie Lennox Walking on Broken Glass
Barbra Streisand & Bryan Adams Finally Found Someone
Queen No-one But You
Blondie Call Me
Beyonce Listen
Sammy Davis Jr Old Black Magic

You can hear the full show by clicking on the link below. This is only likely to be available for a few days, so listen now if you can.


Our previous attempts to save material from the BBC Iplayer were unsuccessful, which is a shame as Rachel's wonderful song performances on 'The Friday Show' appear to have been lost forever, but if anyone can save this show for us, we'd love to have it for the archives.

I Might have a go later, but i'd cut out all the music.

Fabulous song choices, Tucker. Missed the show as I was in Brighton and only home last night - but I'm sure it was great!
