What could be finer?
Beautiful weather, I'm cooking chicken dinner and Michael Ball's brilliant Sunday brunch show on the radio.
Wonderful to have Radio 2 back after my exile to bland Magic during the awful weekend wogan run.
this Brunch show is perfect for a sunday. it should run all year round. Please, cancel the remaining weekend wogans!

I completely agree.

I do like Ball's show, but I don't want to see Wogan disappear from our radios. I just wish he would return to the more familiar environs of the studio.

Yep, the new Wogan show isnt as good as it could be, I think its a TV programme on the radio, which is always going to be a compromise. Id like to see it- to that end Ive applied for tickets, so lets not give him the old heave ho just yet. It takes just a little magic, a tiny tweak here, a tiny tweak there to turn a good programme into a brilliant one, so we should wait and see well, hear.

Michael ball is pretty good though, so perhaps we could have him at another time.

Michael has committed himself to stage work and doing part time shows on Radio 2. This is how he wants to work. He's also going to be presenting a new chat show starting for ITV later in 2010.

Shall miss Michael Ball's Sunday Brunch when it makes way for 'Weekend Wogan' in a couple of weeks. The ITV chat show starts in Sept for 6 weeks. All in all it's been a busy year this year, so part time shows have probably worked in his favour. I really hope there is a way to be able to do a regular slot on radio in the future..

Why can't Wogan just present, some of the year, the same programme that worked well for Parkinson and now works well for Ball ?

I think Wogan is too wedded to hisa Janet & John stories & silly inuendos these days to do a serious radio show

This show just keeps on getting better. Ideal for Sunday mornings.
And just to think in a few weeks time i will be exiled to magic again by the awful wogan show.
