Sun and loveliness

Simon Mayo | 09:44 UK time, Wednesday, 23 March 2011

Hello bloggers, well this is a lovely day. Bright sun and warm weather, spring wardrobes being raided and blossom exploding everywhere. It's been a long old winter, so good riddance. Here's to warmth on your back and a skip in your step.
Team weariness might be expected today as a Nigel led us in an outing of fine food and drink last night. Waiters, chefs and the maitre d' all greeted Nigel as a lost brother. Bob Harris joined us too and many fine stories were recounted and names dropped. We'll have perked up by 5pm I imagine.
Hope blog mechanics have settled down, will find out what was happening and report back.
A sad day for fans of Mark and Stuart's evening show which I have loved all the time they've done it. It has been consistently the best way to spend an evening and I wish them well on 6 Music. I imagine the iplayer is where I'll be heading...
Today we welcome the Human League to the show. It's been a decade since their last album and "Credo" sees them back on the Radio 2 playlist. As far as I can recall, I've never interviewed them before but Phil, Susan and Joanne will be here at 6. I imagine loads of you have "Dare!" tucked away somewhere and I bought "Being Boiled" which was a mighty fine single from quite a few decades ago. So some memories and future tunes too when 'the League', as no one calls them, turn up today.
And tunes today for THE BUDGET, GEORGE OSBOURNE, TAX, INFLATION and DEBT. That kind of thing. And unlikely to pick Money's Too Tight To Mention in all honesty, so anything else is welcome...
Have a suns filled and optimistic Wednesday, see you at 5.
