Hello, changes to the photos would be welcome. On you go Ian 🙃
I think the Bygone photo is John Dunn?

It's definitely not John Dunn, and I don't think it's Ray Moore either.

Yeah, I can't find the original but I'm fairly certain it's Ray Moore. I only remember him bearded.

I wasn't on the PC yesterday so I was guessing on that little picture, now on the PC and looking at the R2ok archive folder, that photo which I put up is in fact Ray Moore, who I don't recall ever listening to on R2 Smile

I only heard him a few times on his early breakfast show when on my way to work at a very uneathly hour back in the mid 80s!

From me too,Helen. I knew Angela Scanlon but was stumped with Bobbie Pryor.

A really nice choice of picture for Terry Wogan,Ian.

Yes, that's the mysterious Bobbie Pryor and the slightly-less mysterious Angela Scanlon. I do like that it's not entirely middle-aged white men, although I managed to resist including Rylan!

It's funny how one time Dermot O'Leary was tipped for the top but now we barely notice he's on. How times change.

Yes, in most cases I tried to use BBC/public domain images but that one, by www.rogerspictures.com was too good to resist.

For your restraint (for which I'm personally grateful) go to the top of the class and collect a gold star! Smile
