Sorry - I have to turn it off. It's like listening to two ducks squabbling over a crust.

Better not to bother turning it on in the first place - after all what do two irritating bozos have to offer Mad

For anyone like me, who's still devastated at the removal of Alex lester & Janice Long from Radio 2, I have found one place where Alex Lester can now be heard and it's here on Radio Kent at 5:00pm on Sunday: http://www.bbc.co.uk/radiokent/programmes/schedules
Does anyone know what Janice Long is doing post Radio2 ?

I always found these two entertaining on Saturday evenings. Of course it was Mel who took over from Emma Forbes and Patrick Kielty used too cover for Alan.

Couldn't agree more with Eric, Ruddles and LEE. I didn't even turn it on either!

I'm in a minority here, I genuinely find Alan Carr very funny and love the banter between him and Mel Sykes (though I'm not sure who she is).

He's certainly funnier than the awful bitter and twisted Graham Norton.

As I've said before Carr has rhe perfect face for radio and the perfect voice for mime

You would think that for 800k Norton might at least put in a full years work

To answer my question from way back when. Janice Long can be heard on BBC Radio Wales; Mon-Thurs - 7:00 to 10:00pm.

She does play some good stuff Becky. More fool R2 for letting the likes of her & Alex Lester go.
