Hi, Nicki C with you on 2mail duties for the first time.
I’ve had a wonderful time sitting in for Lady V in the mornings over the last few weeks. As I began my career in the music biz, I can’t tell you what a treat it is to be part of Radio 2 and to be able to play the songs I love the most.
To that end, I accepted the challenge of picking 20 of my favourite songs of all-time. That list changes day-by-day and hour-by-hour, but I think you’ll enjoy the ones I finally settled on.
