Well that was calmer. Ghost exorcised (see yesterday's ramblings) and order restored. Highlight for me was Jamie C saying he never wanted to hear The Entertainer by Marvin Hamlisch again and then everyone voting for it anyway. It might not have been the jazz standard that the other 3 tunes were, but I quite enjoyed it. But then I'm not an internationally acclaimed jazz musician (you'd probably noticed).
Today I'm watching The Hunger Games and then interviewing it's star Jennifer Lawrence for the 5L movie show (The BBC's flagship film show you know). It really is the most astonishing book which stays with you for quite a while after you've finished it. They'll need a 12A certificate as the book is a children's or 'Young Adult' piece of fiction but as the story is one of an X Factor style contest where children kill each other, that's going to be quite a challenge. As Anthony Horowitz said when he was on Drivetime a few months back, the plot is very similar to a movie called 'Battle Royale' and that was an 18! I shall report back...
Today we welcome legendary Motown artists Otis Williams of the Temptations and Duke Fakir of the Four Tops! How about that! So many hits between them, it'll be difficult to know where to start. The Four Tops and Temptations are touring the UK with Tavares and the Crystals which sounds like one heck of a night out to me.
And lets do PLANET oldies please. Venus and Jupiter are side by side at the moment which is making for a pretty spectacular heavenly spectacle, as long as the cloud isn't obscuring them. Which it is. So we'll have to wait till 2015 for another disappointment of a similar scale. But the PLANETS and CELESTIAL BODIES will keep us going for a while.
Have a dapper and well-shod Wednesday, see you after 5.
