We take you on a guided tour of the best, the good, and the quite good's of the week
It is well and truly 2019 and all of the January bangers are making their way onto our playlists. And, if 2019 continues this way, it’s going to be one heck of a playlist by the end of the year…
Featured Song: Ariana Grande – 7 Rings
Ariana’s follow-up to 'Thank u, next' - Imagine’ – didn’t quite blow up in the way everyone thought it would; but that’s fine because she has a new single which is going to be MASSIVE. You know how we know it’s going to be massive? Because it samples The Sound of Music! It’s, surprisingly, a rarely sampled track… last sampled in 2012 by Cyhi Da Prynce and before then by Alice Cooper in 1971.
Anyway, the track sees Ariana doing that rap-singing she’s been up to lately, talking about how “I see it, I like it, I want it, I…

There is the Labour Party, whose MPs wants to remain the EU but whose Eurosceptic leader is sympathetic to leaving and is therefore resisting their call for a second vote. Meanwhile, large portions of the Conservative Party have wanted to leave the EU for decades, and their wish is being delivered by the Prime Minister, who voted to remain.

On Benji Hyer's Sunday radio show, listener Sam messaged in to say that he believes that Foreign Secretary Jeremy…
Listener Patrick still believes that the US border wall is the best answer to solving the problem of illegal immigration.
The USA is entering its 4th week of a government shutdown – its longest in history.
Ultimately, this is all down to Donald Trump’s proposed Southern Border wall. There is an evident stalemate and stand-off between the two sides involved: Democrats won’t talk about border security until the shutdown is over, whilst the President won’t open government until he has assurance on funding for the wall from Congress. Neither party has an incentive to compromise and break the deadlock.
On Benji Hyer's Sunday radio show, listener Patrick remains one of few who still valiantly believe that the wall is the best answer to solving the problem of illegal immigration to the United States. He sent a message into the show claiming that “if the wall was secure enough, then it would save money in the long-run”.
But, Benji was having none of it...
