Smooth Classics with Margherita Taylor 10pm - 1am
The Only Men Aloud tour bus has been criss-crossing the country for the last few weeks – this week alone they have visited Preston, Bristol and Cardiff. Next week they’re heading off to Bournemouth and Birmingham, before an appearance on Strictly Come Dancing on Christmas Day!
Only Men Aloud member Craig Yates told Classic FM that the tour has been hard work but great fun: "The concerts have really gone well, sold-out venues wherever we've been. It's gone down a storm. People have loved what we do, the new repertoire, some of the old favourites. We put a thing on Twitter and Facebook to ask people what they wanted to see. So there's a lot of new things.”
"We've had the same tour bus for the last three tours", says Wyn Davies. "It's a proper home from home. We all bring our own creature comforts. It's great to be on tour with the boys. We all get on so well, it's a good laugh actually."
They've another tour hot on the heels of this one - this time across the Atlantic. David Fortey is already getting excited:
"The America trip next year is all confirmed. We'll be there in March for three weeks. Originally it was going to be the East side, but looking at the schedule, it looks pretty big and there are also dates in Canada!"
