From Sunday 8 January our twilight hours will be filled with a new kind of sound… The dulcet tones of Dubai’s 92’s Tom Bushell and Dan Marsh will be joined by the melodic musings of none other than Brit Award-winner Lisa Scott-Lee from the iconic British pop band Steps!
Hailed as the ABBA of the Nineties, Steps was huge in its day, touring with Britney Spears and selling millions of albums. Who could forget the ‘do try this dance at home’ moves of the hoedown-inspired track 5,6,7,8, or those electric blue rubber trolly dolly outfits worn for the Deeper Shade of Blue single!
Amid rumours of emotional breakdowns and scandalous double-crossing, the band broke up, announcing their split on Boxing Day 2001. But Lisa was back in the UK headlines recently after reuniting with the fellow band members 10 years after the bitter break-up. Reality show Steps Reunion documented the awkward moments and explored the band’s plans for the future, which includes a reunion tour in 2012 and a new job for Lisa as co-presenter on Dubai 92!
The all-new Tom, Dan & Lisa show, airing from 4pm to 8pm, Sunday to Thursday, is promising to deliver “Dubai's best mix of the nineties, noughties and now” and hilarious banter between stroppy Dan, controlling Tom and the rose between those two thorns, Lisa.
“I'm so excited to be joining Tom and Dan on Dubai 92 as I'm a big fan of the station,” says Lisa, who has been living on The Palm with her hubby and two kids since February (2011). “It will be great fun working with the boys!”
