I thought he must be on holiday as Sara Cox was standing in for CE today.

Apparently there is a God as the throat bug has returned so Sara couldn't say whether she would be there tomorrow but it would certainly be worthwhile checking - I certainly will

Good show today as I would expect Smile

Sara did present the Radio One Breakfast show. Chris hasn't had a good time recently being off the other week. I suppose his voice is his job. Like my legs and arms is mine.

If he shouted rather less his voice might be in slightly better condition Rolling Eyes

Thank goodness we've got a decent breakfast show for at least a couple of days

I think Richard took the wrong week off but Sara will do for me and I imagine Richard's absence was planned months in advance Smile

I wonder if Sara is on the cover list? Both can't go away at the same time.

Is Ms Ball now out of favour or did CE's throat come on suddenly so Sara was the nearest option ?

Zoe Ball lives in Brighton and possibly busy with other things. Best option is to keep with the same person as they live closer to the station. I thought Mark Goodier was also on the cover list? The soreness continues Wednesday too.

I listened to a bit of Sam and Amy and I was disappointed; the commercial radio vibe runs deep in them. I know commercial stations want you to repeat the station's identity frequently, but hearing "Sam and Amy with you on Radio 2" in every link was a bit much.

But I agree with the sentiment that it's good to see radio talent being tried out rather than just grabbing the nearest TV face with a half-decent voice.

Rob.
