Since Terry told us all of the above before he finished his Breakfast show, I'm not sure what the point of this is Question

I saw Elio Pace last year as part of the Albert Lee Band aka 'Hogan's Heroes'. He is a terrific piano player and entertainer. I hope he get to do some songs as well as being the MD. Cool

Does not sound the type of programme that would accommodate the review of the Sunday papers. Is there any chance that SLS will be
scrapped and replaced with a Parky type show with non play list music and incorporate the paper review ?

Quite. In an ideal world, Michael Ball should have started earlier and replaced Steve Wright, not dropped for most of the year.

I have started to enjoy the Michael Ball show. i'm saddened to see it go.
Surely it is time that wogan put his Janet & john stories to bed (an unfortunate phrase?) they are becomming a bit tiresome

Elio Pace has also worked with the legend that is Shakin' Stevens....

I feel sorry that Michael Ball is losing his Sunday Show to Wogan.

Why couldn't they get Michael to replace Steve Wright's dreadful Sunday Love Songs Show.

I won't be at all sorry to see Ball go - his giggling and luvvyness is just too much.

As for SWSLS - just get rid of it for goodness sake! As someone else suggested, let's have a Parky-type show with newspaper and arts reviews, and DECENT music.

Personally I will miss Sunday Brunch (no suprises there). Wink I enjoy the variety of music, it's much wider than in Parky's day. I have nothing against a show of Parky style music but would prefer it to be in the evening not on a Sunday morning/afternoon. I do not get much chance to listen to the radio during the week, so enjoy a mixture of current and older music played at this time of the day. I will be giving Terry Wogan's new show a go but will definately be tuning in when Brunch returns later in the year.

I too will miss Sundy Brunch. There are several Sunday programme I would have been happier to see replaced - SLS (although a different request prgramme would be OK), Elaine Paige or Paul O'Grady, for example.
