There's an article about this in today's Guardian:

I thought it was 100 times better that the old WW format and was quite nice to listen to. His style of presenting is far more suited to a studio, the radio theatre live show thing just didn't do it for me.

I didn't realise they'd gone back to studio format. I'll try to listen to this series - I'd stopped bothering (as with much of R2) because the theatre audience presentation felt all wrong to me. He sounded self-conscious and uncomfortable, and there always seemed to be some technical issue to spoil the flow.

Wogan's at his best when he's bantering with his audience, picking the best from the emails and texts coming in. However, his interviews can be car-crash radio when the interviewee doesn't know him and his sense of humour. And he can be soooo fawning, too. How I cringed yesterday during his interview with Asa.

His interview with Lulu was better, but could have done without him flirting with her. I can understand why, mind you, but even so...

I had to turn off because of that idiot Dedicoate. He gets everywhere on the BBC like an unwanted kid at a Birthday Party. Can't we have Boggy back?

It seems there are two Weekend Wogans with one extra over the next few Bank Holiday Mondays - 2-4pm. I wonder if this will be the norm?

Well I've enjoyed Wogan being on the Bank Holiday Monday shows.
