I thought they'd already done the poetry thing on Jezza a few weeks ago? Was that just a warm up?


It's not really all "the arts" is it? I guess sculpture, painting and tapestry isnít going to work on the radio though. Opera, yes, letís have an Opera on Radio 2- Steve Wright could do it.....yes that would work!

Well it will be interesting to see how many column inches that gets in tomorrow's newspapers.

I read it and didn't know whether to laugh or cry.

** We've had poetry weeks before - remember the Nation's Favourite Poems/Love Poems etc

** Why not sculpture and painting? Send Chris Evans back down to Cornwall to do a show at the Tate!

** Surely Richard Madeley is the man for the Book of the Week; Judy can do the tapestry.

** I thought Penny Smith was (rumoured to be) doing an Opera programme.
Mind you, we don't want opera to suffer over-exposure - Kiri has only just hosted an "Opera X-Factor"

Oh, and three of the author's initials have been left off at the bottom.

I am one of those weird people who don't mind opera but if I wanted to hear any on a BBC radio station I woujld try R3 that's not what R2 should be (although not sure anyone knows what it should do anymore)

I remember when Jezza had his own 'official' poet on his show in it's early years. I think her first name was Lucy and she usually wrote a verse or two about one of the topics of the day. Perhaps Aitch can remember more about this.

Yes it was a warm up to get listeners to write in about their favourites I think Rachel.

National poetry day is an annual thing but I don't think they recognise it every year on R2 or indeed the JV show.

PS you're correct LEE she used to write topical verses and some were quite good.

Pretty sure she was on last week's Saturday Live on Radio 4.

The poet Murray Lachlan Young has been a regular co-presenter on the Radcliffe & Maconie show, as has Simon Armitage.
