I could not help but notice in the BFBS Radio 2 schedules for Easter Monday that Steve Wright is presenting a 2 hour programme on the life and times of the singer/song writer Billy Joel.

I sincerely hope this is just a one off.

They both have a history with BFBS:

Perhaps in answer to another question of yours, Steve Wright & richard Allinson could co-host a show.

Don't wish your Bank Holidays away, we don't get enough.

R2 could make it a bit more exciting though couldn't they than the regular standins, Dermot and JV prattling on.

Good to see that Paul O'grady is live though, as he thanked Elaine Paige for coming in on her holiday Wink Laughing Laughing

Try this sentence then. "Wouldn't it be fun if Steve Wright got larangitis". See you can put the words "fun" and "Steve Wright" in the same sentence. Laughing Laughing
