A 4.30am start is never welcome really but increasingly the way the pillow crumbles. Don't get me wrong, I love early mornings if you're choosing to get up, but if you can stay in bed till 7 then it's annoying to say the least. And lying in bed is waste of time so I might as well get up and pester the foxes. Or write a blog. A lie-in would be anything beyond 6.30 but I can't remember when that last happened...
Two-show Friday again with movies from 2 on 5 Live with our guest Eddie Marsan who was last on discuss The Disappearance of Alice Creed but is just usually brilliant in everything. He's managed to carve a role for himself in Hollywood as well keeping his credibility with the Mike Leigh's of this world. He's about to be in Snow White and the Huntsman and he'll also be in another fairytale adaptation: Brian Singer's 'Jack the Giant Killer' in which the long-standing peace between men and giants is threatened!
Thence to R2 for an ARF for the long weekend and following on from last week's 70's opener, it would logically seem time for an 80's opener please. Big bold and brassy wins the day (with or without the brass). Let the battle of the hair bands and shoulder pads begin!
Have a neat and ordered Friday, see you after 2&5.
