The Drivetime office is always awash with cds as you would expect but now we have a mountain of books to climb over too. Since we mentioned our plans to launch the Radio 2 Book Club, paperbacks, hardbacks, thrillers, romances, historical fiction and a few Jilly Coopers have all appeared. We will hopefully come up with something for everyone as we'll do 2 books a month. The online form should explain everything if you wish to sign up. We hope to announce our first books shortly. But first, meetings must be held.
A 2 show Friday today with movies at 5 Live first with Dr K reviewing The Hole in 3D, Enter the Void and Eat, Pray, Love. And others, if we can stop wittering. Then it is off to don the leathers for the bike to get to another all request Friday. Last week in Newcastle was fun but home studio is home studio and this week it wont just be me in a darkened cubicle at the end of the corridor. ARF is the simplest format ever but (thank you Chris) delivers every week. There are so many trips, holidays, partys and family get-togethers to report, I almost feel I'm part of them. Even if I go home to a frankly rather dull weekend of being taximan and homework assister.
But it needs that opening song really...Go on, set the standard. See you at 1705
