Back in the old routine
1st September. Autumn and school are back. I'm sure that I'm not the only adult who still, decades after leaving school, feels a twinge of nervousness about the start of term. A rogue butterfly still flutters when the new school year kicks in. Anyone else suffer from this?
Last night with Lissie was terrific stuff I thought. I'm watching the video we took while she was performing while writing this. A fantastic voice. I really wasn't sure she should have gone for a version of Stairway to Heaven as her contribution to the Great British Songbook (you can see me looking on nervously as the song starts) but she nailed it. Listener response was stunning- I thought the purists would hate it but that voice just works brilliantly and carried all the doubters with it. Do watch it!
Today we welcome the great James May to Drivetime. Captain Slow delivers his latest book "How To Land An A330 Airbus And Other Vital Skills For The Modern Man". He's always been my favourite Top Gear host and adds class to any show he graces so looking forward to James after 6 today.
And lets do that 'back to work theme' for the oldies. Back in the old routine indeed. And you may have been back ages anyway but now you have the satisfaction of knowing everyone else is too. Please leave your thoughtful considerations below.
And see you at 5.05...
