Nicole Appleton hosts three special shows across Magic Radio
Singer Nicole Appleton has joined Magic Radio to present three shows across the station, from Sunday 13th March.
As part of the pop group All Saints Nicole enjoyed huge success with two multi-platinum albums and record sales in excess of 12 million worldwide, but this will be the first time she sits behind the mic at a radio station.
Nicole said “I am thrilled to be joining Magic Radio for three special radio shows starting from this Sunday. I listen to Magic Radio every single morning, it’s my favourite station to start the day with, and I’ve always wanted to do my own radio show so I’m really excited! I can’t wait to play some big songs to wind down your weekends.”
The three shows will be centered around female themes, with the first show on Sunday 13th March exploring female groups from The Supremes to the Spice Girls and of course All Saints. Female power ballads will be the focus for Nicole’s second show on Sunday 20th March with songs from iconic artists such as Whitney Houston, Cher and Celine Dion. The final show on the 27th March will showcase the best of the 90s female solo artists including Madonna, Mariah Carey and Christina Aguilera.
Whilst presenting her shows for Magic Radio Nicole also took part in the station’s ‘Memory Lane’ feature which looks back at a selection of photos from the guest’s career. Whilst looking at an early photo of All Saints in their iconic combat and crop top outfits Nicole revealed that at the time, they had no stylist for the band.
“Talking about fashion we actually had no stylist,” said Nicole “We actually wore our own clothes all the time in the beginning of All Saints… Those trainers have come back in fashion, and I wish I still had them, as I remember showing my son, he is like mum I am wearing these and I was like I wore them 20 years ago.”
Whilst looking at a photo of herself and good friend Holly Willoughby, Nicole also talked about the strong and long-lasting friendships she has had with her group of girlfriends over the years.
“They have been friends for decades you know a lot of them, and it is like you just kind of grow together, we are kind of still in that same unit. You still have your girlfriends even though you’ve got families and you do your own thing, and you have your own jobs, but we still have time for each other, and I think that makes us such better people because we are there for each other. It is wonderful, it really is.”
You can hear Nicole Appleton on Magic Radio from 5pm to 7pm on Sunday 13th March, Sunday 20th March and Sunday 27th March.
