1234 testing

Hello bloggers everywhere, yes it really is Friday again and hurrah for that. Yesterday's frantic whirl was made more fun by re-interviewing film director Ron Howard for 5 Live. Steve has him on today I believe for his film 'The Dilemma' and my recording was a jolly affair with one problem. It hadn't recorded. Not one word. So after frantic conversations were held, the gracious Mr Howard agreed to re-do the interview and that's the one that will go out this afternoon. Shame the film is not "Apollo 13" but then few are.

Gary Barlow sounded great last night, a really fine concert. I tweeted last night that it was more life affirming than watching Question Time. This seemed to annoy a few followers but I think that when you get to a certain age you have less time for life shortening people and programmes and it's easier to switch off. I hold to that which is why Gary's concert was a better way to pass the time that QT. In my opinion.

But enough of such nonsense! It's Friday for heaven's sake! It is time for an All Request Friday and that's all you need to know. Opening tunes below please and let's get the weekend started in fine style.

Have an engaging and informed Friday, see you after 5.
