Sunny again, lovely. Good to get back into the old routine, nose to the grindstone and into the swing of it. All at the same time. Hope all good with you, another top drivetime extravaganza being planned (I lie, no work done so far). And prior to the show, some fine time with Bob Harris, Ken Bruce, Jo Whiley, Claudia Winkleman and Tony Blackburn. We were at the BBC's Maida vale studios filming some chat for website/red button/anyone that'll take it. We were basically just talking about being on the radio and the craft of making radio programmes. There was so much wisdom and so many anecdotes in the room it will be hard to edit to anything shorter than 5 hours. But doubtless there'll be a 90 second version to grab the attention of the busy. Hopefully it'll be of interest to more than just the 6 of us-we all wanted to carry on! It looks a bit like that Late Review programme from a few years ago, but with less swearing and no smoking.
Today we welcome poet Michael Rosen to the show. Michael is always entertaining with much to say and he's off on a tour with a performance of his old book 'Centrally Heated Knickers' which features 100 poems about science (what will we talk about?) and you can hear him after 6.
And CORONATION oldies please for the 60th anniversary of the Queen's Coronation today. A companion piece to the pomp and ceremony. Your cut out and keep guide etc. Ta
Have a magisterial and glamorous Tuesday, see you after 5.

    Good morning all

    What a good Tuesday night for bloggers, including double menshes as well!

    Katy, I hope all goes well for your daughter's scan as she won't be wanting to hang around in this hot weather.

    I do hope the NYM notices your newly darkened, fluttering lashes this afternoon, Jennie. Maybe you should try numbering your song choices, as Katy (?) suggested, just like the most successful EllaBanks and Mandy always do.

    Off to try to think of middle of the road oldies... reminds me of Chirpy Chirpy Cheep Cheep!

    Morning all. Hopefully I'll be able to tune chase today as I seem to be getting on top of things after my month away. Today's big job - mow the lawn and tidy the garden. It's clearly been cold while I've been away as the grass is only about 9 inches tall and not quite the jungle I had feared. Better still the wisteria has still not properly flowered, so I'll get to see it in all its glory after all.

    It's good to be back!

    See you later.

    Good morning all from a warm and sunny South Essex - the sun has his hat on very firmly,
    ♪♫ ♪ hip hip hip hurray ♪♫ ♪

    Well, no itcy reaction from skin test for eyelash dye so I should be fluttering alluringly later this afternoon (annd if that doesn't get the NYM to notice me, I give up '0)))

    I think everyone is queuing up behind Billy for the hat, Katy - who will get their timing right??
    Good luck to your daughter with the scan - maybe they will keep her in and help things along?

    Where will the music bus take us today??................. tra la la

    Good morning!

    #93 I do feel for your girl and her bump, Katy! My first was nearly 4 weeks late, I had to throw a little bit of a strop with the Consultant, as I, too, was worried about 'the longer in, the bigger the delivery'. Thankfully, after a little help, son arrived just shy of 8lbs and very wrinkly!!- so not huge - but big enough and well cooked!

    I hope all goes well at the hospital today.

    Good Morning All

    A bit greyer here than of late - hoping it brightens up later.

    Well done for all menshes last night, especially to Hazel for breaking her mensh duck. And I was delighted to share mine with Katy M and Ella Banks!

    #90 Billie, when I heard Take That I had to check back to see if you'd suggested it.

    Thinking of your daughter and soon-to-be grandchild today, Katy - hope all goes well.

    Shona, hope you have a good day with your colleague from Oz.

    :o)
