Mother’s day is always a special day for most people, and that was no different for Balsall Radio. On the 26th of March ‘The one and only’ Mike Bentley, from how he is referred to by his fans, placed a lovely mother's day twist onto his show. Throughout the show he gave shoutouts to special mother’s in Balsall Common and the surrounding areas, he played mother's day games and he also threw in a pretty special interview as well! The interview was with current BBC Eastenders star Bonnie Langford who plays the character Carmel Kazemi. To much confusion to some of our listeners we had to explain that Bonnie Langford wasn’t Mike’s mum, even though they are both ‘fabulous’! After the confusion was eradicated, the phone interview began, with Bonnie situated in her dressing room on the set of a recording for Eastenders.
Mike was originally allocated 20 minutes for the interview, but Bonnie was such a lovely guest which allowed the interview to finish nearer the half an hour mark! Mike and Bonnie had a chin wag about everything from her theatre performances, to her many roles on TV with Doctor Who and her current role on Eastenders. aeri
We received many warm messages off the lovely people in Balsall Common congratulating the station and Mike, on the interview. Balsall Radio would like to extend its utmost gratitude to Bonnie for taking time out of her busy schedule to talk to us, and we will always be here with open arms for another chat and a cup of tea!
The interview featured on The Musical Theatre show with Mike Bentley, that runs from 2-4PM every single Sunday. It features many renowned guests such as Bonnie, and also interview with all of the musical theatre groups in the local area. To learn more click here.
