Hilarious Dad

Simon Mayo | 09:21 UK time, Wednesday, 10 November 2010

Greetings to all bloggers everywhere.On the school run today, I learnt that 'half of students will be on demo against the cuts'. Suggesting they all should demonstrate at the weekend to show their true committment was considered very funny indeed. Always good to start the day with a bit of cross-generational humour. Hilarious dad indeed.

Some seem to be surprised at my revelations on last night's show about having a special pullover, which when worn, turned me into 'Peter from Germany'. I was only 7 but thought everyone had clothing with magic powers. Apparently not. It was a very nice navy blue v-neck as I remember. Maybe it was instead of having an invisible friend. any bloggers with magic clothing and/or invisible friends? Hilarious Dad again.

GooGoo Dolls today live from Maida Vale, their new album is 'Something For The Rest Of Us' and I am stunned to report that they have been together for 24 years. Who knew? Very few bands have made it through from the wastelands of 1986 but they have and you can hear why tonight. They also have a rather surprising contribution to make to the Great British Songbook...

And tunes today please with all things CHINESE in. PM's in CHINA so lets do the decent thing and chip in with some songs as they occur today.

Have a calm and mellow Wednesday, see you at 5.05
