Paul's Got The Voice

We've added a Frank Sinatra classic to our playlist - re-recorded by one of our own!

Presenter Paul Allt is giving Ol' Blue Eyes a run for his money with his cover of One For My Baby.

Paul Allt is.... Frank Sinatra!

Hot on the heels of the success of Merseyside singer George Gallagher on this week's BBC One singing contest Frank Sinatra: Our Way, Radio Clatterbridge is playing Paul's version of the tune made popular by the Sultan of Swoon.

Paul explained how he came to record the song and revealed it's not the first time he's been crooning in a record studio.

"It was a present bought for me by my kids. In 2013 they bought me a recording session at a studio in Liverpool. I recorded Ain't That A Kick In The Head. Then last year they bought another one!" - Presenter Paul Allt

Paul says the new studio session was ok for an amateur but he found this second recording a bit tricky - just like the professionals do!

The presenter admits enjoying karaoke on holiday and also gets up to sing at the Cellar Bar in Liverpool when friend of the station Michael Moon is performing.

But Paul says he won't be quitting the Coffee Club programme for life as an international singing sensation just yet. That is, of course, unless he gets a phonecall from Simon Cowell any time soon.
