On the subject of Alex Lester. How nice it is to have him again as 'my alarm clock'. What a shame it's only for the Christmas period.

Yes, I know what you mean. The applies to my alarm clock radio, which goes off at 6.45am. This week I'm able to set it to Radio 2 in order to listen to Mr. Allinson as opposed to Mr Very Irritating Noise!

It was interesting to hear just how many people were obviously contacting Richard as people who did not normally listen to R2 at breakfast hence his comment on a number of occasions about thanking them for tuning to R2

One perhaps couldn't really be sure that he was having a dig at the normal presenter but that was certainly the way I interpreted it Smile

He probably was having a little dig. I emailed him once and made a reference to the fact that I don't normally listen at breakfast. He didn't air my message but he did reply to the email with a thanks and a "wink".

It feels like 10-15 years ago, when Alex was my full time mon-fri 'alarm clock' and I'd have Radio 2 on for most of the time. That, for me, was Radio 2 at it's best. Such a shame it's only temporary. Perhaps it's time to coin the phrase Lester's for life, not just for Christmas!

Yes it does, back to the time when we used to have Radio 2 on all day in our house. I have the alarm set to make sure we hear it all. Very Happy
