As one or two bloggers have already observed - we had what Frank Spencer used to call a "little bit of bother" with our Satanic Charlotte clip. I'm sorry. We tried and have tried again - we think http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio4/news/pm/audio/satan.ram will work...
The truth is the only thing that's occupying our minds here in showbusiness is the imminent handover of the "Broadcasting House" torch this Sunday to Paddy O'Connell. Paddy was one of those who stepped into the breach when Fi Glover was fired, for stealing stationery. Now he's been rewarded with the programme as his own gig. Personally, I couldn't be more pleased. The whole thing's been going downhill since the days Alistair Cooke hosted. I was awful as his successor and Fi was an improvement, apart from the constant thieving.
I'm hoping that on Sunday there'll be a touching handover from Fi to P, as there was last night on the CBS Evening News. Recent host Bob Schieffer was joined on screen by the woman who'll take over next week, Katie Couric. There were kind words, some old clips, and then she made him cry! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZtQgFoU9aPA If there's no blubbing on Sunday there'll be trouble.
