Wossy and his dim-witted sidekick Andy Davis always played good music and had a good banter between them.

Can't stand the Annoying Little Twerp who has the slot now.

Once again, another great show from Wossy today. Why can't we have him instead of the clueless regular incumbent?

I haven't been able to catch his show this week except for some of todays. I always find him a very easy,enjoyable listen and this afternoon was no different. He's a very natural broadcaster. If he had a regular show on the radio I would definitely listen..

Not really missed any, Becky - he's only done yesterday and today. After hearing Steve Wright and his dreadful new feature "put your hand up if..." on Wednesday it was an extra special delight when my car radio came on on Thursday and he wasn't there.

Ian he's had 'Put Your Hand Up' for ages, probably a year at least. Do you mean 'Do You Remember?' as that's fairly new I believe. I don't listen that much to Steve, it gets left on after JV sometimes (if I've been listening to that) and if I'm in the car I catch short bursts.

Oh right,Ian... thanks...I just assumed he'd been on all week.

Has he? Bloody hell. I've not really listened (been mainly Radio 3 for me lately as I work better to it)

And that is really awful - from the cheap jingle to the fact he has to answer all the e-mails the next day because everything's pre-recorded.

But what's happened to Janey Lee Grace? Every time I've tuned in lately it's been Bobbie Pryor or just Steve and Tim on their own.

Nice hearing Joe Jackson just now on this afternoon's programme. Have always liked him.
After the record finished Jonathan said that Joe is now (or was) working as a drag artist in Germany ...really???? Shocked

Well, he's playing gigs in the US at the moment so I suspect that Ross's assertion may be speculation at best, defamation at worst.

Well, his website confirms he lives in Berlin so that means Ross is at least half right. But several sites also say he's a drag singer that goes under the name Dale de Vere, which is a character that apparently appears on some of his albums. I'm far from an expert but circumstantial evidence points to Ross being correct.
