  • Sharleen Spiteri.


This month, I’ll be going to Texas, November 5

“I first met Sharleen Spiteri in 1997 at the album launch for White on Blonde. I remember introducing my mate Steve – a fellow radio rookie who had a huge crush on her – to Sharleen.

“He was rendered speechless and just giggled like a schoolgirl, awkward and blushing, while she was cool and gracious. One of those moments I’ll never forget (although he did give me a dead arm later).

“The band’s latest album, Texas 25, came out last month and is a collection of reworked classic hits such as Black Eyed Boy, I Don’t Want A Lover, Say What You Want, Summer Son and Inner Smile, as well as four new songs. Bring back happy memories and catch Texas live at the Irish Village on November 5.”
