Not dark yet
Ok so I admit I was wrong about Tofu. Nige cooked a blinder last night, really tasty stuff. I'm thinking of asking him to move in with us chez Mayo. I'm sure he'd fit in easily and just rustle up a few mouthwatering snacks every now and again. I'll mention it to him next week.
The thing is about middle age is that you can admit you were wrong about loads of things and not care what people think. I recorded an interview with Bob Geldof yesterday which we'll play out next week and he says that the 50's have been his happiest decade. Less to prove, settled domestically (hopefully) but not decrepit. Not yet anyway. Bob is as unmissable as ever, even if he did tell me I look like Bill Gates. I felt discouraged but it's one way of looking a billion dollars I suppose.
Another moment from yesterday showing why I love Radio 2. An oldies discussion with the team on whether, with the trees theme, to play Radiohead or Dawn.Only, I suggest, on Radio 2.
A movie show for you on 5 Live and a top rocking ALL REQUEST FRIDAY from 5. I need your top ideas for that bar-setting belter of a song and need it now. Or soon. Ta.
Have a wild and enthusiastic Friday, see you after 5.
