Can you name five shows currently on Radio 2 that you listen to 'live' not via the i-player? (This kind of follows on from a thread I saw on a certain other messageboard.) When I thought about it, I realised that I don't have five to name these days. Crying or Very sad

5 R2 programmes I listen to live?
Drivetime (hooray)
SOTS
GMS (usually)
Michael Ball's Sunday Brunch.
Radcliffe and Maconie (not every day but a part of it at least a couple of times a week)
Of course I used to listen to STW every morning, but................
I find I listen to Radio 4 a lot more than I used to.

At the moment it's rare I hear any programme all the way through live but,

1 - SOTS - most of, if not all of it. Usually record as well.
2 - Radcliffe & Maconie - big chunk of sometimes, usually record though.
3 - Wrighty Razz off and on.
4 - Ken Bruce off and on.
erm...

5 - Drivetime and Evans Confused in equal amounts...

so no, I can't say I can list 5 either..

The only shows I make of point of trying to listen to is Radcliffe and Maconie in the week, and Jonathan Ross at the weekend. (I' m sure I'll add Wogan to this when he starts)

However, my day-to-day routine brings me in contact with.

-Either 1/2 hour of Janice Long or 1/2 hour of Sarah Kennedy.
-Chris Evans from 7 to 9 (I'm starting to wonder why I'm still listening).
-Jeremy Vine (most days for about 15 mins...but I think its a great show)
-Simon Mayo for the first 45 mins.

If I have time, I enjoy:

-Desmond Carrington
-Mike Harding
-Bob Harris (Country & Saturday)
