    Thank you for sharing the interview you did with Niksta & including the 10 questions you asked. I could hear her thinking at the time & chuckled to my self. She has worked very hard over the years perfecting her craft and has met amazing people during the process. I love her version of ‘A Long Way to the Top’ and her version of ‘Hallalehia’ on her ‘floggin’ a dead horse’ album that can be found on YouTube is a bit special as well. During the recent 1st lockdown period Nicole did a few live sessions in her home that were really appreciated by all who listened. To just watch her play her piano & sing it was like a private show in our lounge rooms – then playing her guitar in the garden – brilliant. I’m enjoying the radio station as well with a great mix of music – now on my homescreen.
