Well really. I despair. Having apologised for the lateness of Monday's blog, yesterday's doesn't accept comments till mid afternoon. Life is trying enough without your blogging being something you want to grumble about. So apologies again.

Maybe there should just be a generic apology at the top of every blog just in case something has gone wrong. Like the fact that it says it's May for example *bangs head on wall*

So we move on! It's a Wednesday and looking bright and cold from here. Really enjoyed playing the long songs yesterday. This is strange because I own all those song and can listen to them anytime; I guess most of the emailers/texters/tweeters who wrote in own them too. But there is still a wonderful power about your radio playing them and sharing that experience with 6 million others (just thought I'd mention it again). Playing long songs is nothing new of course- it has been done by Ken for many years and Chris does it too. But we shall return to the idea again and not just when a guest booking doesn't work out. I fancy the full version of The Crown by Gary Byrd and the GB Experience one day. Or Thunder Road. Or Feel The Benefit by 10CC (to be continued).

Dr Mosh has an awards special - it's the 'moshscars' everyone- and lets do MARRIAGE oldies please as everyones talking about it and now everyone can do it .

So have a hassle-free and smile-filled Wednesday, see you after 5.

    If Simon thinks he's going to claim the crown from me, by self selecting his own ARFO, then he's got another thing coming!

    #just saying, better be prepared to put up a fight!

    Just had a peek at the 100 album list again on the R2 home page - why have they used the wrong picture for The Rolling Stones 'Sticky Fingers' LP cover?

    Back from a day out in the smoke, at a posh 'do' in the Covent Garden area. An early start yesterday meant that I heard the end of Alex Lester and the whole of Vanessa's show. The latter's format has changed a little since I last listened (which I used to do regularly) My listening device batteries conked out on the way home so I only heard some of Drivetime.
    I do Facebook, with a very limited group of friends. Not sure why to be honest as I'm in touch with most of them by email anyway. I signed up to twitter but have never used it - I actually don't understand it.
    In general I'm opposed to instant communication - it seems to have increased 'stress' levels; if someone doesn't answer a mobile immediately it can lead to anxiety on the part of the caller. This compares with my 'youth' when I went to work in N Labrador (Canada) and no one knew I'd arrived till they got a letter from me some weeks later. I guess it's all progress, but I'm sure it's not always positive.

    Oh, and for any bird watchers, I was surprised, whist walking across Trafalgar Square, to have a hawk flying past my ear. he was being used as a pigeon scarer. I think I was the only person to notice him; the tourists were all taking photos of the sights whereas I was transfixed on the wonders of a bird of prey flying in central London (albeit a 'trained' bird).

    Jennie, he seems to be far too hyper at the moment... it has become worse since the listening figures were announced last week!

    I think he must have had extra strong coffee this morning, Florence - he was shouting and talking so fast, it was difficult to follow what he was saying. And he interupted a song in the middle to talk a bit more...............is he due for a holiday?? ;0)))
