Yes a new 4 part series begins tonight at 9 pm.

I would have missed it if I hadn't gone to the schedules to find last Saturday's SOTS so thought I'd better post a heads up!

I spotted it in the Radio Times. Bill is always a good listen and that hour went very quickly!

Think I've said before,Helen,my series link remembers what I've recorded before so this was automatically recorded but thanks for the reminder it's there,might well have missed it!

Lots to enjoy again with Bill, why can't more radio be like this?

Hope you heard the Christmas edition Becky, it's a good one! I set it on the Sky Box but have just recorded it on to the laptop from iPlayer for posterity!

Not caught up with it yet,Helen,so thanks for the reminder. I've three of Bill's programmes to catch up with,including the Christmas one.The other night I watched Call The Midwife from Christmas...seemed a bit odd watching it in January...might be a bit the same with Christmas songs.. Very Happy

There weren't that many on Bill's show Becky so you should be okay.

You were right,Helen...not that many.Smile

I've just finished listening to it ...I did it in bite sizes. Lots to enjoy,as you said.

And I have it on my Virgin box so can keep it as long as I like.

He played Beautiful Dreamer by Roy Orbison....a song composed in the 1860s!

Heard that a lot lately on an advert on the TV.

It's on my Sky Box as well Becky. In fact I've started to put Don Black's show on there as well as it's often a bit late to listen and as you say it's there for whenever you want to listen.

I think I've some of Bill's previous Christmas shows still on the Sky box so a lot to listen to!

Hadn't seen this so thanks,Helen. Smile

Thankfully my Virgin box had noticed it too and had recorded it as one of my favourites.

Loved hearing Unit 4+2's You’Ve Never Been In Love Like This Before in the late (mid if we're splitting hairs) sixties slot.

I'd have missed it too Becky but for the Radio Times which I have on subscription. I was reading the previous week's edition which I'd overlooked. I keep threatening to cancel it but I only started to get it when I regularly couldn't get a copy at my usual supermarket on a Friday morning when I normally do my shopping.

I used to always buy the Radio Times - latterly on subscription - until it went up to what I thought was an unreasonable price for a listings magazine.

That's what keeps making me think about stopping it Becky.
