Says she's got a foot in the door. At least she coped with Popmaster with a tie break

I like Sara and I think she coped very well and certainly a lot better than that other female bimbo who used to stand in for Ken

I suppose I can equate with Sara's sense of humour and I think she fits in well on Radio 2 Smile

I was in and out of the car delivering flowers so I didn't get a chance to listen properly but from what I heard she's easily better than Ball or Winkleman

She played They Might Be Giants so I was happy enough with her show this morning!

Yet another step towards R2 becoming old R1 Rolling Eyes

and we also got Mark Goodyear Shocked Rolling Eyes

There just gets less and less to listen to.

True Nod but at least they are proper radio people, not TV celebs the the awful French & Saunders

Personally I'm quite happy to see the old Radio One on Radio Two just so long as it does not go beyond around the year 2000

As has been pointed out we are at last getting professional and experienced radio people who know about and have a serious interest in music (that certainly applies to Mark Goodier) instead of incompetent and bungling so called celebrities whose only motive for doing the job is to boost their already over inflated egos even further

Credit where credit's due - perhaps Mr Shennan is eventually and somewhat belatedly getting the message Smile

No credit for Chris Evans at breakfast, Zoe Ball, Sara Cox, Tony Blackburn, Simon Mayo in my view Rolling Eyes

Hardly had a chance to hear any radio since Monday as I've had visitors staying. Heard Ed on Christmas Day and a bit of Paul O'Grady while in the kitchen but I don't think I've missed much.

Recorded Bill Kenwright and SOTS (this Saturday's girls only) but not much else I feel the need to 'listen again' to. Sad

Of the names mentioned apart from Evans and Ball I think the others are absolutely fine and certainly for me Simon Mayo is one of the most intelligent and entertaining presenters we have had on Radio Two Smile

Now we know where Ken has been. He's just won Celebrity Mastermind

I wish he would find some new ideas, he's flogged Confessions for the last 20 years ?, homework and 3 letter acronyms are becoming boring, and the self-indulgent 'quiz' where the 3 simply guess the answers to amuse themselves is tedious. Rolling Eyes

I enjoy Fridays, and the business parts Very Happy
