Dazed and confused
So I've been up since 4.30, had my breakfast, read the paper, tweeted for England, made the tea for Mrs M, done the emails and it isn't even 0800 am yet. I'll be hyper-active and irritating for a while then crash about 4.55pm. I'm sure you wont notice.
Hope you enjoyed some of the Electric Prom last night, the chat with Elton and Leon was my highlight. It was the one bit we couldn't nail down and weren't sure about. Would it be five minutes only? Might it get cancelled all together? Will Nigel's fish pie fill the gap we need it to? Well as it turned out, it went swimmingly. Being ushered into the inner sanctum is a weird experience. Darkened lighting, sofas and flowers. Leon Russell all ready seated and ready to go, Elton's team lined up by the food and then EJ arrives in a blue tracksuit and we're off. You can listen again if you missed it, I think they were both enjoying themselves.
And a word for Judie Tzuke who sang with her two daughters. Sounded terrific under very trying circumstances-tannoy announcements and rude bar chatter from people who should know better. She's still got it!
Plus Lissie returns to reprise her "Stairway to Heaven" performance which was such a hit when she sang it for us a few weeks back. Whether she knows that Mr Plant will be watching I'm not too sure...
But we'll bring you the All request Friday first and I'm of a mind to play some Led Zep. But that's up to you really.
Have a wild Friday, see you at 17.05.
