Well that was better. Thanks for all the positive comments about last night's show. I knew Wilko Johnson would be good but not that good. He has an extraordinary story to tell and great set of songs to be very pleased with but that doesn't mean it would necessarily be compelling radio. But (I suppose) the proximity of death focusses the mind somewhat and gives you a certain clarity about what matters and what doesn't. I still was ridiculously annoyed at a missing Oyster card this morning, so I obviously wasn't listening closely enough but I will strive to do better. Here's hoping Wilko's body gives him much more time and as many glorious gigs as he wants.

And for today Nigel seemed to promise some chocolate popcorn cake or something similar. Hmm. In Nige we trust, however challenging the circumstances...

And oldies please for DREAMERS AND DREAMS. Particularly WEIRD DREAMS. Top psychologist Richard Wiseman says that it is quite likely we get weird dreams when the moon is full. There is an evolutionary explanation to do with sleeping lightly at the full moon because of predators but frankly who knows...But if you dream having a mango cocktail with Jeremy Vine while stroking Meryl Streep's washing machine, I'd blame it on the lunar cycle. Anyway, songs please.

5pm allright with everyone?

    #129 OSM .. might even precede them amelia ... Paul of Sheffield ( where ARE you PoS?) may have coined the honour. Or if not, would certainly know who did.


    Well done mentionistas for yesterdays tunes. No surprises.



    :^)

    Morning all

    It is a stupidly gorgeous morning here - I just want it to be 5.30 NOW.

    TW – OSM is order of the silent mention – you pick a song, it is played, his lordship doesn’t say your name, you take delight in being aligned. It was invented by … for the life of me I can’t remember was it Sir C or coffeeBuzz – sorry boys.

    Good morning all - misty and murky first thing but it seems to be lifting and the sun is trying to locate his hat.

    topwifie - OSM is Order of the Silent Mensch - when a choon you chose is played but no name attached to it.

    Hair cut this morning, cleaning lady (otherwise known as Mo the Mop) this afternoon - I'll post the appropriate previous ARFO winners at the end of this blog when we know what it is.

    Happy Friday everyone

    Well done Vixta for your debut mention - an excellent choice

    Amelia - can you remind me of what an OSM is - I forget.

    Stressed Erica - it's been a big week for you all, have a relaxing and fun filled weekend.

    Lady B - good to "see" you.

    Listening to Elbow as I grind away in the gulags - fantastic.

    Will - did you catch the question from Matt on the Icelandic glacier? Did you know the answer is the question!

    See you over the page perchance?

    Good morning everyone! Jocko wasn't out of his cage last night. It was indeed this blasted ipad thing.

    Won't be around today for an ARFO so catch you all later. X

    No idea why I am awake but it gives me the chance to say well done to Zoe for tonight's wisdom - sorry you fell out of my head earlier.
