Fave ELO Songs: Stephanie Hirst

#1,094: Hello ... Hello ... my old friends ... It's great to see you once again! This is #3 in a series of ELOBF special posts. TV and Radio broadcaster/writer Stephanie Hirst was among the throngs at Leeds earlier this week to witness the triumphant live return of Jeff Lynne's ELO. Yours Truly KJS touched base with Steph and asked her not only what ELO songs she enjoyed but also what her fave tracks by The Beatles were thus:

KJS: "What were your fave ELO songs?"
SH: "Oooh ... "Tightrope" ... "Big Wheels" ... "Can't Get It Out Of My Head" ... aarrgghh! So many! "Tightrope" if I have to choose!"

KJS: "And what would be your top Beatles tunes?
SH: "Oh and my fave song of ALL time is "In My Life" from "Rubber Soul"! My fave album of all time is "Abbey Road"!
