Claire’s Kitchen regular, Meredith O’Reilly has put together an all new show which will be an entertaining and eclectic mix of Meredith’s all time favourite songs. The odd showtune of course but peppered with movie themes, pop and novelty hits, jazz and swing from across the decades of the 20th century. Of course the yarns about why they are her faves is all part of the fun.
