Good grief

Presenter

Feeling old this morning. Feel old most mornings. But child 1 turns 21 today and memories, photos and presents are much in evidence along with articles and newspaper cuttings revealing the advancing years. It's one of those 'Sunrise,Sunset' moments (younger bloggers need to refer to 'Fiddler on the Roof' here) that seem to occur with amazing frequency now. I remember playing Baby Baby by Amy Grant on the show the next morning and trying and failing to say something meaningful. And looking back there were probably a few better songs to play than Baby Baby but at the time...what did I know etc.
Hey we have Keane on the show today. New album is Strangeland, their 5th consecutive No 1, a record only bettered by The Beatles (from debut recording this is). I do enjoy their melodies and Tom Chaplin's singing so look forward to Keane after 6.
And oldies please for the TOUR DE FRANCE which Matt reports on every night and in which Bradley Wiggins and Team Sky seem now to be the favourites. It must be one of the biggest prizes in sport and it's time to salute the yellow jersey. Tour de France tunes please.
Have a fragrant and well-powdered Tuesday, see you after 5
