Sounds Good To Me
Need to check how the new cricket season is progressing; it's the first test match of the season very soon but boy that sounds optimistic. Chris has been talking about how much snow is falling, here we are just finishing off our ark. The Jubilee anoraks and Union Jack thermals will be this year's must have items.
Off to the Sony's yesterday for an evening of toasting the success of radio grandees like Nicholas Parsons, Jools Holland, Chris Evans, Danny Baker and the 5 Live team of Peter Allen and Aasmah Mir (though can't remember when they're on). An absence of success this time for your Drivetime host and Mark Kermode but we renounce trinkets and baubles when we don't win. And like them when we do. Best part of the evening was sitting next to Ronnie Wood! And good company he was too. He won a silver Sony and seemed genuinely thrilled. I would have thought, with all those millions of record sales and awards, that a radio gong wouldn't count for much. Not so, he was chuffed to bits. Would have loved a gold but the silver was appreciated.
And today we welcome the wonderful Felicity Kendal to DT. Millions fell in love with her in The Good Life with Richard Briers she launched her acting career in India where her parents ran a touring theatre company. She has a new documentary Felicity Kendal's Indian Shakespeare Quest on BBC2 this Wednesday and you can hear her tonight after 6, but let's do FELICITY KENDAL oldies all day. You know you want to.
Have an elegant and well-turned out Tuesday, see you after 5
