Ed Sheeran, Westlife, Michael Bolton and more will appear on Smooth Radio’s brand new interview podcast, Famous Firsts.

Smooth Radio is launching a brand new global original podcast today, Famous firsts, hosted by Smooth Breakfast host Jenni Falconer.

We all remember our first gig, our first album, and the first song we slowly danced to, but what about the premieres of our favorite artists?

In Famous firsts, Jenni Falconer will chat with pop music legends to hear the stories behind their premieres: first concerts, first recording contracts, first TV appearances and more.

Famous firsts will allow listeners to hear the hilarious, heartwarming and sometimes heartbreaking stories from guests each week as they remember host Jenni.

Hear Ed Sheeran talk about his hero Elton John; Michael Bolton talks about his parents’ divorce and their unwavering support for him; and Shane Filan and Nicky Byrne reveal what made Westlife stand up for their very first key change.

Listen to the trailer below:

Famous Firsts Episode 1 premieres Monday, November 8 with Ed Sheeran, and confirmed guests for the podcast series include Gabrielle, Westlife, Richard Marx, Paul Young, Tony Hadley, Billy Ocean, Leona Lewis, Michael Bolton and Marti Pellow .

Jenni said: “It has been such an exciting opportunity to chat with some of music’s most iconic artists and ask them questions about their early experiences. I loved hearing every artist talk about their first TV appearances – hearing about when they met their own idols and how they spent their first big paycheck.

And then there are the individual stories like Westlife talking about what made them stand up on their first key change, with Marti Pellow remembering his first time at the BRIT Awards and Ed Sheeran sharing the times he was booed. off the stage, and how Sir Elton John guided him through his career. I loved hearing their stories and hope the listeners enjoy them too. “
