I’m getting political!

No, I'm not considering a career in which I pontificate over how I could change your life for the better and bring about fiscal miracles.

There are too many opinionated souls already battling for those positions of power they covert. I have always been interested in politics and fascinated by the characters and the conjecture surrounding their promises and behaviour.

So I was delighted when offered the opportunity to experience a career first - and this Sunday night ,I’ll be the anchor of the BBC radio coverage of the European elections across the Midlands! Now Im no Robin Day or Tom Bradby, but to have the opportunity to work with Kathryn Stanczyszyn and deliver the results late on Sunday night will be fun, especially listening for the best or most original excuse for poor performance at the polls!

So please join me Sunday night from 10 on BBC WM, BBC Stoke, BBC Shropshire, BBC Coventry & Warwickshire or BBC Hereford & Worcester and there will be your chance to get involved on the show a little later as well.

Plus I’ll be back doing the late show on BBC across the Midlands on Saturday and Bank Holiday Monday too.

Listen to the show anywhere here >>>


Love and best wishes



Carlos xx

So, if we're old friends from my many years at Smooth I really hope we can get together again every weekday from 4. I'll be with you at the end of the work day with an abundance of fabulous music and a bit of chat.

This weekend is going to be a bit special for me and I'd love you to be part of it as I make my debut on the BBC!

I started in radio in the autumn of 1982 and over the past 32 years have worked at many great radio stations across the country, most recently broadcasting to the whole of the UK on Smooth Radio.

Now I'm about to reach another milestone in my career and realise a lifelong ambition as I broadcast on the BBC. 

I've been asked to deputise for Keith Middleton on the Late Show across the midlands this Saturday at 10pm and I'm really excited as the show is a celebration of the music of the 70s & 80s. You can get involved too! I'd love you to call in and be part of it and maybe request a song. 

The show is broadcast on BBC WM, BBC Stoke, BBC Coventry & Warwickshire, BBC Hereford & Worcester & BBC Shropshire. You can listen anywhere here >>>

As it's the BBC there has to be a little more decorum (and the security guys were suspicious of a bloke with no surname) so I won't be using nickname. I'm reverting to my birth name of Carl Emms, but you can still call me Carlos. 

Catch you Saturday night at 10 on the BBC. You will be able to listen live via the BBC iPlayer Radio here >>>


Love and best wishes



Carlos. xx
