Listen
Playing: Cool Papa Bell by Paul Simon
BBC Radio 2

Hooray for Friday and everything that goes with it. Sun shining here and looking lovely for the weekend; with the temperatures looking pretty high on Sunday, it looks like a fine day for lying in the park and saying 'Wahay! Go Sir Tom!" a few times. By the evening it'll be nippy I think so bring layers (my role here has moved from blogger to mother).
Interesting points from the blog yesterday, particularly the 'illicit' recording of radio shows. I too have some cassettes of old shows tucked away in boxes and am just starting to rummage around trying to find them. There is a point to all this and there will be details coming soon but the BBC is keen to hear what is out there to supplement the archives. So if you have some recordings (and I'm sure I too heard Tom Browne talking about the 'Spot The Pigeon' EP), get them ready. Somewhere I have Paul Burnett playing a song for me and getting my name wrong- imagine that!
And with reference to the Mayo clinic query, no, nothing to do with me. My ambition for the book is to get to the point where you google 'Itch' and 'Mayo' and it doesn't take you to details you might not need...
Let's get those ARF tunes in and kick off today's show in fine style. A tune with comes an adrenaline rush please.
Have a trim and and nifty Friday, see you after 5 (and 2, if on 5 etc).

    Morning everyone

    Well done Deebee on getting the medal count right and well done to all those amazing paralympic athletes for achieving so much in so many ways. I hope all of the participants enjoy their parade today, culminating with the Red Arrows over Buckingham Palace!

    Pleased you had a good time at Hyde Park Deebee... I saw very little of it on the TV as I was watching British and World Superbikes, but I watched Jessie J and Emeli Sandie and both were great but as a big fan of Emeli, I thought she was fantastic.

    John B Good, I enjoyed posting yout ARFO tune first on Friday but I don't like being first myself and if I see a new blog I like to wait for others to be first!

    Morning all

    Busy busy weekend, and haven't had much chance to catch up, but...

    Thanks for posting my ARFO choices Florence, and at #1 too! 10/10 for dedication

    Well done Queen Toots for the ARFO, which I heard in a very sweaty steamy car (no, not what you're thinking, the AC is broken) - (Oh, and now being played by CE)

    Glad to hear you had a good time Deebee

    Good luck with the move Billie,

    Will now peruse other goings on...

    Good Morning All

    Bit bleary this morning - we didn't get home till about midnight. But we had a fantastic time! I'll post a bit more about it a bit later over the page. Just had a look at my pics - they're not brilliant, and mostly of the screen as I couldn't get a good shot of the stage above people's heads. But there may be one or two worth posting, including one of our leader kneeling at Jo Whiley's feet...

    ;o)

    Chuffed that I got the medal count right! I'd like to thank my manager, my family, my fans.... oh, okay I'll shut up.

    Billie - when is the big moving day? Hope it all goes well. I'll have a word with the Clerk of the weather for you.

    ~X~

    Morning All

    Didnt here much of the concert last night except for a bit of Paloma Faith which was good and 2 or 3 Quo tracks whilst driving, enjoyable their live performances have something a bit different to hearing just a song on the radio

    Thanks for what you posted at #67 Lilac Blue, definately worth knowing

    Good luck for your dad Parsley Cat

    See you all on the new blog

    Morning all.

    # 110 - thanks for posting the final score results Paul, and how fantastic they were.

    Wasn't listening to yesterday's concert as such, as had a houseful for a BBQ (or technically a gardenful), but had it on in the background. Have to agree about Paloma Faith.

    The hardiest of our guests stayed outside til after the dark had set in, and saw the spectacle of the 'glow in the dark' stones recently purchased by Mr from Eastleigh. He has an obsession with solar-powered lights, and these are a variation on a theme , that I must admit do look pretty.

    Back to the grindstone today, so may see you later on the new blog x

    Morning all

    I hope the move goes well Billie....

    Congrats to Deebee for being spot-on with her bid. Looking forward to hearing 'tales from Hyde Park.'

    Didn't hear much of Hyde Park I'm afraid, some Paralympics but I spent most of the evening sorting, on the phone and reading in bed after an early night.

    Hopefully I'll have a bit more time this week for blogging, so see you all on the new page.
