Auld Lang SING - Peter Hooton of British band The Farm to mark the start of 2017 in style on BBC Radio Merseyside

PETER Hooton, lead singer of Liverpool band The Farm, is set to present 2 shows on BBC Radio Merseyside on New Year 's Eve and New Year's Day.  During the 2 programmes, both aired between 8pm to 10pm, Peter will be taking a trip down memory lane and playing his all time favourite songs, while also telling anecdotes from his 30 plus years in the music business.

From Bob Marley to David Bowie, The Clash to The Beatles; Peter's mix of tunes will be sure to get local listeners into the party sprit just in time for 2017. The list of top tunes includes:- 'Lola by The Kinks' and 'A Change Is Gonna Come' by Sam Cooke.

Peter also includes several hits that influenced The Beatles' early sound, such as:- 'What'd I Say by Ray Charles' and 'Watch Your Step by Bobby Parker,' putting to good use his experience as Chair of The Beatles Legacy Group; which aims to maximise the potential of the Beatles' legacy to Liverpool.

Peter Hooton said:- "Being from Liverpool myself, it'll be great to return to my roots and share my favourite songs while having a good chat with the people of Merseyside. Every song I have selected has a story or a meaning behind it and I can't wait to hear what the local listeners think of my collection."

Sue Owen, editor of BBC Radio Merseyside, said:- "We're excited to have Peter come down to the studio and put together a show based entirely on his songs of choice. He's got over 30 years' experience in the music industry so not surprisingly he's chosen some fantastic and fascinating tracks."

Listen live on BBC Radio Merseyside online or tune into 98.5 FM, on the 31 December 2016 and 1 January 2017, between 8pm to 10pm.
