The schedules seem a little similar to Radio 1 apart from a few shows. I just wonder who will take over the show full-time if Lynn Parsons dosn't after her stint at Smooth Radio. I don't know why Janice & Alex couldn't have extended there shows.

Perhaps you'd like to explain why it is now?
My original thought, why I originally asked the question, was that 06:00 - 07:30 was when people might be listening, and she was followed by Terry, but now it's 05:00 - 06:30 surely it's less inviting ?
I think pointless was a little harsh. The 90minutes Sarah had was better structured. If your going to have an early show then why not run it from 4am to 6.30am like Radio 1. There is no paper review. The traffic has been scrapped now at 6.30am. Traffic problems don't just start at 6.50am. Or why not move Janice and Alex shows around.

Why do they have to do what Radio 1 does Mark?
I don't think it matters who starts when as long as they broadcast in a manner appropriate to the time of day. If I were getting up at 5 rather than 6 I don't think I'd want to have a different sort of radio show to listen to.

I said it live on air in the studio with Jeremy Vine on 10/3/2005
The most logical thing surely is for Janice Long to get her hour back and have the Dark Lord on the air until 630. This would actually save the BBC some money. The down side of course would be the lack of a female presenter having a daytime show but what the heck?
I'm afraid I've got to the point where a great deal of the Radio 2 output feels alien to me. So I guess I'm not really that bothered what Shennan and Co do.
