It's up and running on DAB and online from midday until midnight daily until Sunday.

The schedules are here :-

Some good shows and presenters. It will be on iPlayer catch up I hope for 30 days as I won't have time to listen to all that I'll no doubt miss.

Wow - Simon Mayo a bit busy tomorrow, with a show slotted between his 5Live and Radio 2 ones! I assume it's pre-recorded.

Didn't know about this,Helen, so thanks for posting about it. Smile

I tuned in to Tony Blackburn's programme this afternoon and thoroughly enjoyed it.

He started off with this one...

Yes it was good Becky, glad you were able to listen! I didn't hear it all as I had to go out and I don't have DAB in the car. Sad

From what I can remember my dad only ever went to the pictures twice...once to see The Longest Day which, unless he was kidding us which he often did, he fell asleep through, so for him it turned out to be the longest day in another way. Very Happy
The other film was High Noon. He loved both the film and the song Do Not Forsake Me, O My Darlin '. Simon Mayo played that on his Big Screen Country programme yesterday which brought back lots of happy memories for me.

Heard a little of Cerys' programme and was pleasantly surprised to hear Jerry Lee Lewis singing about the Green Green Grass of Home...not the kind of song I would normally associate with him.

Just seen the playlist for this show. Did he really play all the tracks twice?!! Shocked

NO! I've seen that happen on another playlist though.
