I've got into listening to this a bit late in the day but am a bit sad it's coming to an end, albeit temporarily. For some reason I'm not sure Terry's show will work at this time of the day.

Time will tell I suppose!

I agree. This show is a perfect "Sunday Suplement" sort of thing for a relaxing Sunday Brunch.
Hearing terry's OTT trailers for his show i shudder & may have to find another show for this time Sunday. sadly, there are none like the Michael ball sunday show.

Terry's new show would have been better in the sunday 5PM slot. Or saturdays at 6PM

I quite like the format H, and also the music. Michael Ball is a bit "cute and cosy" for me, but I can tolerate him. Looking forward to Tel next week.

I think listeners would perfer going to the venue during the day on a Sunday. I think it will work, but how long will the 12 week gaps last?

Mark, not for the first time you've lost me in what you are trying to say, but I certainly wouldn't fancy going to see a show live on a Sunday morning even if I lived nearer to London!

Like the breakfast show I think it's going to be a bit too loud for a Sunday morning.

As I said time will tell.

I think he's mellowed a lot since he first took over the show, wasn't a huge fan back at the beginning.

If you mean how long in between Sir Tel's run of shows, the announcement said four weeks!

or maybe Mark meant how long would the 12 week spot last before it becomes permanent and MB loses out...

I know... as Chris Evans keeps saying when he plays those trailers - Wogan sounds a bit too loud for that time in a morning doesn't he... Wink

A severe case of 'the pot calling the kettle black'?

Ha! Chris' tongue is placed firmly in his cheek. To be fair on Chris, he understands exactly why people don't like his show - but he does what he does. Blame Bob not Chris. Saying that, I've decided to wake up to 6Music tomorrow morning. The first station that isn't Radio 2 to wake me up on a weekday morning in ten years.... :s

Yes, it was a monumental step for us, but it's done now. I don't feel angry any more, just absolutely dedicated to not hearing one minute of that dross. Unfortunately, sometimes we're not so prompt on re-tuning and I guess in time we will stick with the alternatives for longer and longer. Job done, R2.

So do I, every week! I really miss the music Parky played, I'm looking forward to Wogan returning, I just wish they get rid of SLS and give us something decent...

Did anyone see Michael as a judge on ITV Dancing On Ice on 14th Feb? Still keeping busy even if he's not on Sunday Radio2. I think it was a little spoiler Wink

Yes I did. He is very busy at the moment, so these next 11 weeks off will be coming in handy Smile
