I would much prefer Gary Davies as regular presenter on the afternoon show

To me SW fronts a very dated show which has become totally boring to listen to possibly with the exception of the 'oldies' - but Gary includes that feature anyway rebranding it as the 'Oldies In The Middle'

For me Radio One was good in the eighties before Matthew Bannister wreaked havoc with the station and really there aren't that many eighties presenters from Radio One on Radio 2 at present - Chris Evans Sara Cox and Simon Mayo were all nineties so really currently only SW and the occasional stand in

I'd like to see more former eighties presenters back on the BBC including Simon Bates and Janice Long Smile

From the mid 80s I'd switched selectively to Radio 2 (R1 at weekends oddly though) and I worked shifts or daytime with train commuting so didn't hear a lot but wasn't keen on a lot of the 80s people. 90s I was definitely R2.

Wouldn't mind Janice Long back but it depends what type of show she would have.

It's alright saying oh Evans is off so it's safe to switch on. It's not as the show is no longer the breakfast show I would want to listen to.

I'd imagine that it would be something like the show she does for BBC Radio Wales between 7:00 - 10:00pm Monday - Thursday. Radio 2's loss is definitely Radio Wales' gain!
