What a lovely story, Raver, I didn't know he had been ill and assumed the repeats were because he couldn't record any new ones.

Thanks for this Raver! I haven't heard Michael Ball for a while but will listen again just to hear Don. Thank goodness he's made a full recovery.

I think Don came to the end of the usual 13 week run and for some reason Jools Holland didn't return for the intervening next 13 week run. I don't listen when he's on so maybe it isn't a show that would be able to be made with the current restrictions. I just assumed that they decided to repeat some of Don's shows until he was due to come back.

Here you are, ladies. The chat starts around 1:27:00 into the programme. A couple of seconds before, to be precise. The whole show is good. I find him infectious, while the last 30 minutes is a must. I also blubbed at the beautiful Beth Nielsen Chapman song not long after the Michael and Don. As I said, it's an emotional time.

He's had a rough time what with Covid 19 and Shirley's death, and at his age.

I'm quite happy with repeats of Don's show. Much better than Jools's offering.

Thanks Raver! Just listened and it was moving but Don sounded well which is the best news. I bet his book will be a good read as well.

I think you're right, H. If the price goes down from 17 once it's released, I might give it a try.
