Press office has said:

Quote:
In October this year, legendary broadcaster Desmond Carrington celebrates 30 years of his weekly show, The Music Goes Round, on BBC Radio 2. In a special edition on Friday 7 October from 7-8pm, 85 year old Desmond will be revisiting the playlist from his 1981 debut.


Fabulous 30 years of Desmond, though not quite all that time as The Music Goes Round, it was All Time Greats until September 2004, though the report does say so later.

I think there's a slight error in that press office quote. While Desmond may have been with Radio 2 for 30 years (well done to him!) Music Goes Around has only been on for a few years, when Desmond was moved from Sundays to Tuesday evenings and losing two hours in the process. His Sunday show was called All Time Greats wasn't it?

Should be a great show. But the BBC are making a bit of a meal of his age.
