Just add beer
Each to his own. Cloud cover-100%. Sun 0%. Can be drab but love the mildness, hate the cold. I think it dates from cycling to school and cursing the ice and biting winds which seemed to blow against me both to and from school. So long may the mild weather last! Keep that pesky sun at bay behind the strato-cumulus duvet we have here!
A word on song mentions. The truth is that Good Bird Noises Paul has it exactly with comment 143 yesterday. You are at the heart of the song choices, while being (obviously!)a tiny fraction of the total audience, and that is the issue really. Sometimes names are included, sometimes not. Sometimes they are bloggers, texters or tweeters. Or it's a team choice. Or I forget to mention names. And usually just the one per show. Bu there wouldn't be the selection that there is without your clever choices so please keep them coming. I will mention names when I can but even if they aren't, it doesn't mean you are taken for granted. I hope that all makes sense.
Anyway I take all the comments about Welsh Rarebit back. Nigel's creations were terrific and the mature cheddar option was really hitting the spot. Clearly all I needed to add was the stout. Silly me. It helps that by 6pm we are all starving and maybe there were some memories of student life here, but it's a definite option for that Sunday at 6pm moment. You don't want a meal but fancy something more sustaining than crisps. Nige wins again.
So a Friday with 2 shows again. Director John Landis joins Mark and me on 5 Live to talk about his book about monsters and reviews of the weeks big films. Then to R2 for a lovely ARF. The starting gun for the weekend/drive home/meal prep. The blue touch paper to light (without retiring). Over to you...
Have a distinguished and memorable Friday, see you after 2 and 5 on 5 and 2.
