On Sat 12th May, Cherry and the boys were asked to go to Maida Vale to record a live session for Paul Jones's show on BBC Radio 2. It was a day that really brought it home to them how hard they've been working over the last 5 years.
"I was absolutely buzzin' to record at the one and only Maida Vale studios with my boys!" says Cherry. "We were all fired up and raring to go and boy did we fill Studio 3 with ENERGY! Listening back to the mixes, we were made up that producer Paul Long, Mike the engineer and Jo the assistant engineer really captured our sound. I can't wait for you all to hear it on Paul's show on Monday 28th May!"

You can listen in 7pm on Monday 28th May online -http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b01hzb2h or of course in your car or on your stereo!

If you like what you hear on Monday, we'd be grateful if you could email Paul Jones at http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio2/shows/paul-jones/contact/ to let him know what you think!
