Hollyoaks (in 2018-2019)

Hollyoaks, the well-known Channel 4/E4 teatime soap opera, is a show I’ve watched on and off over the years. But I ended up watching almost every episode in 2018-2019.  I think it’s been the best it’s ever been, and it has won a lot of awards for that time, including Best Soap at the British Soap Awards and the Inside Soap Awards, plus a Royal Television Society award.

Mid-year Limbo: Songs from 2018 I’ve listened to more in 2019

So that time of year again, the half way point, where there are songs which came out the previous year but I’ve listened to more this year. This one is a bit of a bumper year, as this is a top ten rather than a top five! Though I wonder if that’s partly down to 2019 being a little on the lean side for music? Well, I guess we can evaluate that at the end of the year. But, for now, here’s a top ten.
