Those with soft tops have (on my journey's evidence) been showing off today. Their journey might be slow and fume-filled but by heck they want you to see they're catching a few April-strength rays. Me, I'm in a poky enclosed minicab bouncing and swerving around London's most speed-humped streets. Jealous?

Another set of innocent pupils are about to sit through my totally terrific talk and wonder why they couldn't be in Maths.

Then a jaunty return to R2 towers where Lisa Stansfield drops by for the show. 25 years after topping the charts with All Around The World she has a new album and is singing the soulful stuff she became associated with. On the basis of what I've heard, her voice is as rich as ever and she's very welcome back.

And oldies please on MUMBLING. A top subject I think and all because Jamaica Inn viewers couldn't hear the actors dialogue. This is quite a regular complaint with viewers and you would imagine one that is easy to rectify. Radio sound folk always think TV sound is inferior anyway, so we all nod wisely at this point. Mumbling, incomprehensible tunes welcome.

Essex beckons. See you at 5

    Possibly, AG. But it looks as if the blog will appear AFTER Drivetime tonight, so I may get away with it!! I need to do stuff now. It's getting ridiculous. I haven't eaten yet, or done my washing. And the dog is huffing with me now, lol.

    Do you know what's really funny?!

    I did my usual hurried list, once I'd seen the theme on Twitter. It was all ready in about 15 mins, and having just looked at it, it's really quite pants!!

    And now I've seen all the good suggestions elsewhere, I think I might be a bit embarrassed to post my list anyway!!

    # 253 do you think blog Coventry is less concrete-jungle than real Coventry? Maybe it's paved in blue and orange .... hmmm......

    Have also tweeted one suggestion (I'll think it'll get lost in the crowd)
