Welcome to another episode of A Touch Of Pink, your one-stop shop for rainbow pop. As usual, all tracks tonight have rainbow content. Tune in this Saturday on JOY 94.9 from  5-6 pm for a whole hour of wonderful explorative listening.

KEiiNO

14 new or recent tracks tonight featuring rainbow artists from the USA, England, Canada, Denmark, Norway, Germany, Sweden and Australia. There are some brilliant new releases from Jean Michel (with his Dansk Melodi Comptetion entry), a lovely song from Fredrik O from Swedish duo Man Meadow, KEiiNO’s new song, and a new one from Perth alt pop band Alter Boy. Not to mention two k.d. lang remixes, an MNEK remix of a track from Sugababes 1st album from 20 years ago, plus the amazing collaboration by Elton John and Years & Years on It’s A Sin, which they performed together recently at the UK Brit Awards. Strap yourselves in for fun!
