So this is a busy day! Helena Bonham Carter and Kristen Stewart interviews to be done before our Drivetime special tonight from the science museum. HBC is Miss Haversham in a new 'Great Expectations' and KS is of course Bella in the final part of the Twilight saga 'Breaking Dawn part2'. And then hotfoot to Knightsbridge for the British Broadcasting Corporation/Company's 90th birthday jig. This has been a while in the planning as you might have realised.
The 5.33 moment is the focus of most of our thoughts as this is the bit that EVERYONE WILL HEAR. All the network radio stations, local stations and World Service will all be JOINING OUR SHOW. This is a scary moment. What if I play Kylie by mistake? What if Damon's mic doesn't work? Do I speak in a Radio 4 way, a Radio 1 way, slower, faster, in a Cornish accent? I DON"T KNOW is the answer. And the BBC could do with a good news story really so WHAT COULD POSSIBLY GO WRONG?!
Anyway we'll have your RADIO OLDIES please and at least that part of the show will be secure.
Have a CALMING and STRESS-FREE Wednesday. See you at 5

    Good Morning All

    It is dark, and indeed dank here too. Not a good hair day...

    I really enjoyed the show last evening too. Like others, I wasn't sure about Damon Alburn's piece, but maybe you need to listen to it more than once.

    #90 Yes it is happening, Autumn_Gale - for the past couple of years it's been called the Children in Need Jukebox. It's the reason why some bloggers are travelling to London today and tomorrow, to help with answering the phones.

    See you over t'page...

    Quick "good morning" I hope the blogpoppets are well on this dank and foggy morning (at least it is here in the East).

    I thought last night's show was great (though the sound took some getting used to) and Simon was great with the official bits. Not entirely convinced by Damon Albarn's 2LO Calling - the horn that seemed to go for ever in the middle actually made me reach for the 'off' switch.

    Does anyone know if it's the 'music marathon' tomorrow? I haven't heard it mentioned but its a traditional part of the fundraising......

    #83 Jennie I got one too (with Gazza, Sir Cumfy & Helen May) for Radio Radio - I hadn't thought about it like that but am now grinning, what a lovely thought indeed. I love radio more than almost anything.

    I thought Lord Ammo did fantastic tonight (as if anything else was possible). Been packing so not had a chance to listen to his 10pm show but with the joys of iplayer I will.

    Should be in bed, alarm going off at 4.40am - early flight to London, woo hoo. So looking forward to meeting all the bloggers.
