Think I'll go with a dress-down Friday theme today; jeans, t-shirt and an air of slovenliness. This of course is how I approach most days and am grateful every morning that I don't need to be suited and booted on a regular basis. The glories of radio. Had to be a bit smarter at 5 LIve in case someone important turned up but only slightly. An ironed t-shirt being the absolute minimum needed which seems fair enough. It is unlikely that anyone important will turn up today however. The 2 show Friday starts at 12 today due to the Ryder Cup taking over on 5L and we only get an hour to squeeze everything in. My guess is I'll get to say at least a sentence or two.
Plus,casual attire fine today because there are no school visits scheduled. I struggle a bit on these trips to know what to wear. Staff obviously need to be smart pour encourager les autres and they don't need some DJ scruff to come and give the wrong impression. So a jacket on top seems a good compromise. Yesterday, in the deepest parts of wooded Surrey, all went well and I was wearing a sweater! So we might have had a few new Year 10 listeners yesterday (14/15 year olds as I knew really, just forgot. Ahem). Hope they enjoyed the Frank Sinatra!
And so eventually to R2 and the ARF for a selection of weekend treats. Claim that crown back right now.
Have a casual, insouciant Friday. See you after 12 and 5.

    Morning everyone

    A lovely sunny, autumnal and chilly start to the day here.

    So pleased that Europe has retained the Ryder Cup, which I think is to be in Scotland, 'the home of golf', next time, so that pleases my golf-mad husband! Just as well the policeman who gave the very late Rory McIlroy a lift to the course wasn't a golf fan, otherwise he may have taken him the long way round so that he'd miss his tee-off time!

    Be careful with all the high-kicking, Hucklebuck stuff Shona... glad you had fun!

    Good Morning Everyone

    Legs feeling a bit sore today. Serves me right for all the high kick dancing on Saturday night to The Huckle Buck ;) *wishes to be a teenager again*

    Good Morning All -

    The weather hasn't decided yet ........................

    @ Jeffrey - I DO like a coincidence - didn't catch this show - just saw it listed in RT - "Gene Krupa - Drumming Man - Stewart Copeland continues the profile of massively influential drummer Gene Krupa (1909 - 73)" !!!

    Morning all.

    Stayed up far too late listening to Ryder Cup nail-biting glory last night so feel a bit 'wrung-out' this morning. I hope everyone had good weekends and that the weather isn't to awful wherever you are.

    Catch you all on the new blog.....

    Good morning to anyone out there - wet and gloomy in South Essex this morning.

    Mr has gone to the golf course but I bet he'll be home before long!

    What a magnificent win for the European golf team yesterday in the Ryder Cup - well done!! Another great event for the 2012 Year of Sport - the Sports personality/team of the year is going to be interesting this year!

    Enjoy your keyboarding Billie!

    Have great evenings all.

    See you in the morning - Mr walking the golf course tomorrow, not playing because of the injured arm.

    Good Evening Everyone.

    Good to hear that you're all finding enjoyment!

    #86 Jennie - I DO! I DO! But our normal Sunday is Mr. going for a walk - me staying in my jamas - he getting the papers - MollyCoddling - see posts passim - and a very relaxed day which might involve a bit of light gardening -with R2 on most of the day - LOVE EP - LOVE JW - LOVE Mr. O'Grady!

    Today was different - it rained almost non-stop - still we drove to Holyhead - about 17 miles each way - and we bought some "puffery" - a new triangular Rattan Laundry Basket - a Pine Bedding Box - a DoorBell - some Extention Leads - one so that we can run two bedside lights from one plug - a Companion Set for the fire -
    "Companion Set" - where did that originate? - lots of "homemaking" stuff - and we are very pleased with our purchases.

    We have decide to miss the evictions - even though that means missing Gary - we shall have Mr. Davies at our table for Mediterranean Roast Veg. topped with Mozz.
    He doesn't appreciate anything - the pleb!

    Going to KB a few tunes in the meantime - BTW - I do Macarthur Park really well -
    but I miss out all the chords in the middle and then come back to finish it off rather grandly!

    Love to you all!

    The golf is in full swing (sorry!)and Mr is avidly watching every stroke - I do hope we win but it is all a bit drawn out for me; I just peek over the top of a book every now and then and produce sustenance and liquid refreshment when it is required.

    Sounds like you had a lovely time with Long Lost Lesley over the weekend, Shona. Isn't it incredible what we can drag from the recesses of our mind when we have to?

    What a great night we had playing all the old singles! We still remembered all the dance steps for Do The Huckle Buck (we devised 40 years ago) to vino collapso with Banana Rock, The Wombles at midnight!

    Up early though Billie and took Lesley (long lost friend) over the Duke's Pass. The weather and scenery were beautiful and she really enjoyed her day.

    Deebee, hope you enjoyed Michael MacIntyre. I think he is excellent!

    #88 Flo, that made me laugh ;)

    The other option far too noisy for a lovely peaceful Sunday afternoon :)
