His “Tip for the Top Twenty” in the programme is Joanne, a pretty young woman whose full name will not be revealed until the programme has started. The Confederates, a new trad Jazz group led by Bobby Mickleburgh, will be making their TV debut in the programme. The Confederates will play, appropriately enough in this centenary year of the American Civil War, their version of the Battle Hymn of the Republic.
