New Music Friday

New Music Friday

By Lorna O'Brien
Everything changed with Carly Rae Jepsen’s iconic bop Run Away With Me.

After harbouring a secret love of all things pop, this song inspired me to start blogging about my love of the genre in 2015.

Fast forward nearly four years and I’m making my foray into podcasting with a weekly round up of the best new releases and some old favourites too.

The blog also doubles as my (not so secret) diary, so expect a couple of detours as I weave totally unrelated - but hopefully humorous - anecdotes from my daily life into impassioned speeches about the songs I’ve been playing on repeat all week.
