What a lovely day you had Eileen and what luck you had meeting the owner of the house you were looking for!

Long time since we had a post on this thread..........

Have been doing a bit of tidying up among my music related stuff of late and put a mini disc into the player with the title only of J Walker and the date somewhat obscured.

Have spent the last hour (having our tea at the same time) listening to a Friday Drivetime show. Music great, Martin Shankelman on the business (US dollar rate given as 1.66....) Mystery Voice not guessed at £70 and Cruisin' just about to start.

Great listening to Johnnie and Sally Traffic of course and the whole thing sounding almost too grown up even to be on on Radio 4............ O/H's comment 'that's what you need a bit of business chat and good music' if only those in charge would take heed..... Maybe I'll send them a copy to remind them of how good Radio 2 was then. It was summer and Wimbledon was starting the next week with Greg Rusedski still playing according to the sports guy.

H

PS Richard Allinson is off from Magic Drive this week doing breakfast instead hence my not having anything to listen to!

Reading your post,Helen, reminded me of a poster on the BBC TV board...Doghouse Riley....who was always railing against the lowering standards etc across the BBC. He was quite a lone voice back then. Thinking about it now he was ahead of the curve. Rolling Eyes
