I prefer her to Jeremy Embarassed I'm not a fan of celebs sitting in either usually but I this case I think it was a good choice.

Not very keen, it sounded a bit like Woman's Hour. Don't think her voice is strong enough either, I felt like dosing off until I swithed it off today. I never thought I'd say I wish Matthew Bannister was doing the show.

Much prefer Jeremy but admit to being biased. Wink

Heard nuggets of her - and I find her adequate enough. She's no JV or JY but she'll do.

Why did they stop using Brian Hayes? He was good as a stand-in.

Why they stop using Matthew Bannister and Brian Hayes - because Bob Shennan and the BBC love to hire celebrities to host shows. The reason is so they can hit commerical Radio. This is about chasing Ratings!!! Rolling Eyes

I found Fern a pleasant listen to the ear. She doing well.

Oh my god get her off. Just caught the tail end of her interview with Brian Moore, she's like an agony aunt, awful.

It's like daytime TV which I can't abide.

We turned it off in favour of SK Listen Again. This has been a very disjointed week radio-wise.

It was on in another room while I was doing some paperwork so could just hear 'hum' of a voice. Went into other room and caught the end of the interview and have switched off!

It's getting to the stage that I can't be bothered with Radio 2 at all this week.
