I posted this info in the Australian promo thread because I could hardly believe it was true. Now I think such a great news deserves a specific thread. Please Billy, tell us more about it.

Maybe Aussie fans can explain what this announcement means? Is James to host a radio show every week or what?

http://www.smoothfm.com.au/music/smooth-music/james-blunt-on-smoothfm

Superstar James Blunt is joining the smoothfm family, Sundays from 4pm

James Blunt is one of the world’s best musicians and now, having released his fourth album Moon Landing, he is adding radio host to his long list of accomplishments.

You can join James as he plays his smooth favourites every Sunday afternoon on smoothfm from 4pm, so grab yourself a cuppa or a nice glass of fine wine, settle down on the couch and relax with James and your favourite music.

Try that to find out.

It's very easy to listen to SmoothFM 95.3 via their Facebook page. Must be as easy via their website or any app. I've just listened to it and heard James' advertizing spot for his radio show. How cool!

You can listen through the radio station website, their Facebook page or other app dedicated to listen to radio. See the links in the second message in this thread.

James has the perfect voice for radio. The motto of the radio station is "More music, less talk". I would like the contrary when it's James hosting the show.

And???

I didn't get to hear it. Was it James talking in between songs? Or just a playlist of songs? Which songs were played?

Please share, thanks.

James talks between songs but not as much as I would like. Of course, I understand he's there to play music. I thought of writing down the playlist but didn't do it. I'll see what I can do going by memory and a little help of others who listened to the show.

I'd like to listen to the show weekly but in my time zone it's from 1am to 2 am. I'm not a night owl, so a bit difficult for me. Dilemma!

Just to give you an idea, here's an attempt to write the playlist, not in exact order.

First show aired on October 13th 2013:

'When you say nothing at all', Ronan Keating

'Total Eclipse of the Heart', Bonnie Tyler

'Son of a Preacher Man', Dusty Springfield

'Bonfire Heart', James Blunt

'At Last', Etta James

'Careless Whisper', George Michael

'Please Forgive Me', Bryan Adams

'Every Time You Go Away', Paul Young

'Haven't Met You Yet', Michael Bublé

'You've Got a Friend', Carole King

'Miss You Like Crazy', Natalie Cole

[Song's title missing], Olivia Newton-John

[Song's title missing], Bee Gees

I wish we could have podcasts of the show because there are many fans of James across the world who can't listen to it in real time. Request sent, fingers crossed.

Looking at the list of songs, I imagine that if James is choosing the music he is choosing it from from a set playlist of song choices that he's been given! Some perfectly good songs there but somehow not the list that I would expect!

I'm pretty sure that technology these days doesn't require his physical presence in Australia to record the show!

Don't miss James' radio show if you can, in less than an hour. This time I'll write down the playlist. James will be hosting 4 radio shows in total:

Sunday, Oct. 13th
Sunday, Oct. 20th
Sunday, Oct. 27th
Sunday, Nov. 3rd

Posted on Smooth FM 95.3 Facebook page today Oct. 20th:

James Blunt is back today at 4pm, with his very own show. Here he is in the studio last week - what a pro!

James Blunt treated us to a very special acoustic performance of 'Bonfire Heart'

One of the newest members of our smoothfm family, James Blunt delighted us with this fantastic acoustic performance of his new hit 'Bonfire Heart'.

The song is one of our smooth discoveries and we certainly love it here at smooth.

We also love hearing James on the smoothfm airwaves, every Sunday from 4pm - the perfect way to end the weekend.

In this video he looks not really happy, more the opposite. He seemed to suffer from anything and tried to come through the performance as good as he could.

Grenade - Bruno Mars
Beautiful - Christina Aguilera
Bridge Over Troubled Water - Simon & Garfunkel
High - Lighthouse Family
Take my Breath Away - Berlin

I'm not sure when James' slot ended but as the previous playlists were both thirteen songs long I guess this one is too?
The next two songs were

What a lovely playlist I really enjoyed it! Some of my favourite songs and such a wonderful way to spend a Sunday morning :woot:
It was funny whilst I was listening me and my daughter were cooking in the kitchen and she noticed they said 'afternoon' hihihihi she was already confused enough about the clocks going back

Michael Buble is one of the best and most talented entertainer at all in our present time. Some of his songs are wonderful, esp. which were selected for this radio show.

But I am a bit in doubt about it that this range of songs was really J.B.' decision. It is a wonderful selection of songs that's beyond all questions. But it doesn't look like his own  musical taste (pixies etc.) ? But maybe we don't know something about his real taste.
