Friday I heard that "Flood" rubbish by Take That three times on Radio 2! no wonder I'm listening less lately...

Mind you, Eloise is a great song so that's ok... Laughing

I can't agree with you about Tony.. I think he's doing a fine job as he always did..

Yes, I agree with you. His style is exactly what the show's format needs. True, it's an old-fashioned format but there's absolutely nothing wrong with that in my view.

I think it will sound even better live. I agree with the above. He's doing a find job whether it's recorded or not.

pd bmn: Eloise was indeed played twice today. I guess any duplication is due to SOT60s being planned and recorded weeks in advance.

The Good The Bad And The Ugly also featured on both shows and I don't mind because that too is a fine tune.

Tony Blackburn is better than I thought he would be, and he was surprisingly complementary about Hendrix, as Jimi is not Tony's sort of music. He's informative (as Dale was) and anecdotal, though I don't see why he had to curtail The Beedles' Hey Jude. Long songs don't have to be cut short.

Yes, he really did say Beedles, cheesy as ever!

Dale has played the year in the past few months, but it's a different style that matters. I really enjoying Tony at the helm.
