Very busy Friday here. Fifth day on the trot I've written before 6.30am. Roll on the weekend! Here's today's line up:
9am Roger Waters. Yes really! He's recording a Desert Island Discs for Radio 4 later today but first, he's coming into Radio 2. "The Wall" is on tour later this year and what an extraordinary gig it sounds. The original "Wall" only played in a handful of cities worldwide and no footage of it has been released as far as I can find out. So for most, this is their first and presumably only ever chance to see one of the biggest selling albums ever, played live. He's a fascinating man, will let you know when you can hear it.
Then at 10.30 it's Channing Tatum and Jamie Bell who star in "The Eagle", a loose adaptation of Rosemary Sutcliffe's "Eagle of the Ninth". It's a classic sword 'n' sandals romp in the Highlands which I really enjoyed. They have since become firm friends apparently and they have a great on-screen relationship. That's for 5 Live this afternoon at 2 where Mark K is in New Orleans for some conference or other.
And then, hooray, it's an All Request Friday. Great opening songs in recent weeks coming through, so if there is a mighty dashboard and steering wheel tapper that is a compulsory listen in your mind, then tell me now!
Then, a glass of lemonade.
Have an accomplished and stylish Friday, see you after 5.
