    Well, Eddie, you know you're always tops with me!

    Well done, Eddie! Well done, Team PM! Well done, the Great British Listening Public!

    Oh - sorry, I thought you'd already won the Awards ....

    Aha! I see you're repeating yourself, Eddie! Well, good news can never be heard too often, can it?

    In the spirit of yesterday's programme:

    There was a young man from the Tay
    Who was famed for the things that he'd say
    His victims would blanch
    While the listeners laughed
    And the prizes lined up on display.

    There was a young man from Dundee
    Who'll win an award - wait and see.
    For his style and his grit
    Not to mention his wit
    He's the best in the land, you'll agree?

    PM is now 40 years old
    And Eddie deserves a gold
    For delivering us news
    and hard facts, not his views
    and keeping the nation amused

    On the radio, others have said,
    Fulsome praise leads to overblown head
    But there is one exception
    [Who's name I shan't mention]
    For where hair was there's now space instead

    When Eddie met Johnny

    Hard man Hutton met his match
    One day on Radio Four.
    He came on line with lips firm tight
    And vowed to say no more.
    But Eddie, with his rapier wit
    Released on him a volley -
    And though he kept his powder dry
    The fight was lost to Johnny.

    Between five and six every day
    Is a programme with truth, not hearsay
    PM is it's name
    The presenters aren't tame (lame)
    tune in and be part of it's fame.

    (ahem) coffee time - clearly getting worse now..

    Jonnie, you only have to scroll upwards to see the truth of my statement (and, no! - I was not being rude to his Lordship). ;o)

    The recession was here to stay
    And Nils had so much to say
    A tune cheered us up
    Upshares Downshares 'a must'
    and the listeners saved the day

    For one upon other arrived
    MP3's filled the inbox like flies
    Eddie had an idea
    Called Sandy - the same year
    Now a charity CD still survives

    Of course, when all is said and done,
    The programme ain't just Eddie
    So lift a glass to all the Crew
    To Sequin, Hugh, and every
    One within the Team

    Jonnie (9): Of course, Eddie did somewhat condemn himself in the Radio Times last week when he said "Shortly after our first meeting, the editor came up with Radio Head. What could have inspired him?. Well that Band's first single was "Creep". And you cant argue with the sense of that. In addition I am on the radio - and I have an enormous head."

    Alas, I don't buy the RT, though thank you for the transcript Big Sister.

    I can, however recommend this weeks Homes and Antiques article on 'Beautiful new looks with wow-factor wallpaper'

    .... liked the Eric Ferarri sign off on the newsletter.

    I wonder if LBC has a Nick Mair?

    I'm confident that PM will do well. I cannot comment on all of the opposition, but it will all have to be very good if PM is to be denied a top award.

    14 - jonnie, I see LBC is nominated in all the same categories. Being as I can't hear it up here in the Far North I looked at their website.

    Their election computer is fun. I discovered it's time to change my lifetime voting pattern.

    Good luck in May to all the team!

    Take a sparkle of Sequin
    Add the wit of Eric
    Stir with the humour of Jo Carr

    Result? A soon-to-be award-winning radio programme.

    Best of luck with the awards.
    I think it was an item on flowers in parks that has put Eddie and PM in with a chance. :-)

    Looternite: Do you mean to say that you should also be invited to the Awards Ceremony? Perhaps Eddie could also invite along whoever amongst us has spent more hours on the Blog (I couldn't possibly claim to be that person ;o))
