Kris’s birthday gift from Brent Black!

It was my birthday last week. I’m 34 (I know, I don’t look a day over 31) and we had a great celebration on air. Rossi and Priti got me a Back to the Future cake featuring the DeLorean. But my Virgin Radio Dubai colleague Brent Black went one step further… and got me a goat. Yes! I had said I’d like a goat as my kids had told me they wanted one, and he remembered. He burst into the studio carrying the beautiful Layla and put her on my knee. She was the most awesome gift ever, though she did try and eat the wires in the studio. She’s back at Al Dhabi farm until I build her a proper enclosure and she becomes part of the Fade family!

Meanwhile, I celebrated being one of Ahlan!’s Hot 100 for the third year running. I was honoured to be included again, and it sounds cheesy but it really does mean so much to be recognised in the UAE! We had a great time at the glam bash at the Waldorf Astoria.

Keep listening this week, because as rents go up across the UAE we have the perfect solution – the chance to win an apartment, rent-free, for a year!
