Top of the Heap.
Assuming the solar storm hasn't hit and all electronic communication has ceased, greetings. Maybe if it does, it'll sort out the blog and the BIAU squad can stand down. I appreciate this is unlikely but we can hope. Welcome to a lovely Thursday on Radio 2. Chris is talking about this year's 2Day and plans are afoot. Given that you are, by definition, amongst the Drivetime elite/hardcore/shock troops, we'd be interested to know what you'd like to hear as R2 shakes it all up again. We each get 1 hour at a different time to normal with some different music to play with. Who fancies what?
Today we salute British Pie Week with Nigel knocking up a steak pie for us all (he takes orders, deliveries within the hour or your money back.
And oldies today please for the MIDDLE AGED (we may have done this before but obviously I've forgotten). According to Cambridge University academics, the middle aged are not over the hill at all. Oh no. Far from it. We are, and I quote "at the very summit of evolution, perfectly adapted to the needs of family and society." That's us! Hooray! You might not have felt at the summit of anything for a while but you are now. So celebratory MIDDLE AGE oldies please, as we gaze down from our summit. We are "the most impressive living things yet produced by natural selection." Feeling so proud.
Have a strutting, top-of-the-heap Thursday, see you after 5
