iPlayer Radio What's New?

H2O and then some

Simon Mayo Simon Mayo Presenter

Today's blog brought to you courtesy of another railway company and their fine rolling stock. I'm heading to the wilds of High Wycombe to talk to another school and prime them for their Radio 2 years. I always start the slide show/PowerPoint with the Radio 2 logo which makes the teachers laugh if nothing else. I will leap about and perform to the best of my abilities just like the Radio 1 Roadshow of old. It'll be like Barry Island 1986 all over again (but without the drunks at the front I trust).
Today we offer you another book club choice and this time it's Eoin Colfer's Artemis Fowl: The last Guardian. This is the last in a fantastically successful series of children's books about a 12 year old criminal mastermind, famously described by the author as 'Die Hard with fairies'. There is a chapter for you to read of course and then hear Eoin after 6.
And oldies does indeed need to be ANDY MURRAY. He put up a fantastic fight but when you're up against a magician, what's to be done? And even the Murray doubters seem to have been won over with his emotional, post match speech. We could go for tears, getting closer, or whichever angle you fancy really. A pick-up needed.
Have a cheery, good news filled Monday. See you after 5

    Good Morning Blogchumsters!

    More poor Murray misery on news AND and radio and twitter and blogland and all other social media this morning - they keep *going back and reflecting on yesterday* - sincerely hope none of our happy little band is in need of counselling
    ;^)

    Yes, the boy done good but not quite good enough. As someone who doesn't invest emotionally in these occasions - am prepared to move on swiftly and look forward to the next massive sporting event - a quick cheer hurrah or boo hiss will do for me, thank you very much



    No MURRAY choons for me - might find some for JONNY MARRAY though.

    Hi Simon and everyone

    Yes I concur with you in respect of Andy's fantastic battle with Fed.

    I do hope the Murray doubters leave him alone now, and I'm sure his 1st grand slam is just round the corner.

    Here we go then:

    1. ALL CRIED OUT - Alison Moyet
    2. FIGHT FOR THIS LOVE - Cheryl Cole
    3. CLOSE TO YOU - Maxi Priest
    4. HIT ME WITH YOUR BEST SHOT - Pat Benatar
    5. Everybody wants to rule the world - TEARS FOR FEARS
    6. WHAT'S THE COLOUR OF MONEY? MURRAY head
    7. BETTER LUCK NEXT TIME - Dr Hook
    8. HEART ON YOUR SLEEVE - Gallagher and Lyle
    9. EVERY LOSER WINS - Nick Berry
    10. How Long? ACE

    Oh well must slope back to it.

    Have a nice day

    Mandy ;)
