Simon Mayo Simon Mayo Presenter

Actually in my house this morning which is a strange moment. No schools to talk to but back on that tour again tomorrow. The trouble with 'working from home' is of course getting roped in to give children lifts when buses fail to turn up or missed bus because spent too long looking for umbrella. If you're on a train, that's that. `Yesterday's star pupil-as i mentioned on the show-was a lad called George who told me he listened to the show regularly. Before I looked too pleased he added it was his grandmother who always had me on. Anyway this is a good thing as I subscribe to the theory that a 'target audience' is a nonsense and that everyone is welcome. Across the generations, come one, come all. I always tell the pupils that we might not have tempted them in just yet, but that Radio 2 will get them in the end. Like death and taxes.
Today we are baking. Paul Hollywood, judge on "The Great British Bake Off", will be with us. His partnership with Mary Berry has been described in The Guardian as 'the show's secret weapon' and maybe one of the best judging combos on TV. I have never baked but happily pay for other people's labour and watched last night's episode of doughnuts and celebration breads with a rising hunger. Cakes and bread are seen by the weight conscious as the devil's food but Paul looks in good shape to me and he will discuss the art of baking from 6. And GREAT BRITISH BAKE OFF oldies should fill the gaps between sponge and tart (insert your own joke here).
Have a trim and sporty Wednesday, see you after 5.

    MACARTHUR PARK - Richard Harris

    MacArthur's Park is melting in the dark
    All the sweet, green icing flowing down
    Someone left the cake out in the rain
    I don't think that I can take it
    'Cause it took so long to bake it
    And I'll never have that recipe again, oh no

    Morning all.

    I am a relatively new (though zealous) convert to GBBO. I didn't get the "pfoar" factor with Paul Hollywood until about episode 2 of this series, but now ... how can you not fancy a man who is so ....tactile with food?!

    Anyhoo this oldies theme seems to come up a lot so I'll add my vote for:
    Brown Sugar - Rolling Stones
    Don't It Make My Brown Eyes Blue - Crystal Gale
    Mary's Prayer - Danny Wilson

    Aha, thanks for asking after me John on a previous blog. I think the South West did take a bit of a drenching, plus looking at the paper this morning, so has pretty much everywhere else in the country.

    I hope everyone else is safe and sound.
