Iconic singer songwriter Tanita Tikaram will be joining the team in Radio DIVA studio. 

Best-known for hits including Twist In My Sobriety and Good Tradition, Tikaram will be talking about her recent DIVA cover shoot as well as new album Closer To The People, and her highly-anticipated concert at the Barbican in London next month.

“I’m very excited to be on Radio DIVA,” the German-born singer said. “It will be my first time on the show so I’m really looking forward to it.”

Self-confessed Tanita fangirl Rosie Wilby added: “I’m really excited to meet Tanita. When I was at school studying for my exams, I had her debut album Ancient Heart on cassette and listened to Twist In My Sobriety over and over again on my Walkman. I think it got chewed up with all the rewinding!”

Joining Tanita in the studio will be comedian and DIVA crush Suzi Ruffell, who’ll be chatting with Rosie and Heather about her upcoming run at the Soho Theatre.

Suzi, who hosts the Like Minded Friends podcast alongside Tom Allen, said: “I am really looking forward to joining Rosie and Heather on Radio DIVA on Tuesday. What fine company to be in on a frosty January evening.”

Also on this week’s show, Rachel Shelley eavesdrops on a Pink Singers rehearsal, lesbro Johnathan Phang reads the latest headlines from OutNewsGlobal, and Heather Peace gives our ears a treat with a new DIVA Discovers.
