Welcome to Famous Firsts, a new Global Original podcast from Smooth Radio, with host Jenni Falconer.
We all remember our first concert, our first album and the first song we slow danced to, but what about our favourite artists’ firsts? In Famous Firsts, Jenni Falconer will chat to pop music legends to hear the stories behind their firsts: first gigs, first record deals, first TV appearances and much more. Famous Firsts will let listeners hear the hilarious, heartwarming and at times heartbreaking stories from guests each week as they reminisce with host Jenni.
Hear Ed Sheeran talk about his hero Elton John; Michael Bolton open up about his parents’ divorce and their unwavering support of him; and Shane Filan and Nicky Byrne reveal what made Westlife get on their feet for their very first key change.
Subscribe for new episodes in this 10-part series every Monday, starting with Ed Sheeran on November 8th.
