That's right. Enthusiasm without restraint. That is what we offer you (even if a very recent guest I'm thinking of couldn't quite sign up to that pledge). Lend us your teatime/drivetime and we'll show you a good time. But you're signed up already, so you know all this. I'll get on with it.
So Wilko Johnson on the show tonight. His new album with Roger Daltrey is a wonder. It just leaps out of your speakers! Wilko is best know for his work with Dr Feelgood (though he and his band The Solid Senders were pretty darn great too) and this album "Going Back Home' is a must-have. It features 11 tracks, 10 of which are Wilko originals and the 1 cover is Bob Dylan's 'Can You Please Crawl Out Your Window. Wilko, as you may well know, has terminal pancreatic cancer, but has been determined to live out his life with as much music as he can. He says he was supposed to die last October and that he 'had a great year'. Wilko after 6...
Also today a confession that features one of our team. That's all I can say. They don't know who it is and there are a lot of nerves knocking around I can tell you. All will be revealed at 5.40.
And the return of Masterchef tonight for its 10th anniversary. So many big fans of this hit show that we just have to do MASTERCHEF oldies. And how good to have a show where most of the contestants would be welcome in your house, and not just to rustle up a triple-cooked partridge with confit of asparagus and truffles dipped in squid ink and braised in holy water from LIndisfarne. Or something like that.
Your place at 5?

    #116 Jilly... Ah, that was it! I'd forgotten it was in my pre-Florence days. I don't really think Gazza realised what he was saying, or how it would be taken!! :o))

    Amelia - Shona is not an enthusiast of the Sewing Bee. I find it mildly hypnotic and get drawn in despite myself!

    Flo - you made me smile.

    Back later - over the page perhaps?

    It's an all time blog classic.

    gazza: "I'm still up LuciesMum" aka Flo back in the day. And it seems as though the tradition continues :)

    Hope all are well.

    I was in a graveyard. I was kneeling carefully to avoid the sheep poo. I was taking a photo. I lost my balance. There were LOTS of stinging nettles - nice, new, fresh little blighters. I'm lucky not to be scarred for life!

    Happy Thursday lovelies.

    #112 Amelia. I didn't think about it either when Gazza said the same thing some time ago, after I had asked late one night if anyone else was still up, until someone commented (I think it may have been Jilly).....

    Amelia, TW's sewing reference is because I said the Sewing Bee TV programme was a cure for my insomnia.

    Morning folks

    I clearly have an innocent mind - didn't think twice about gazza's post until I read it again Flo ;-)

    I've missed something or am being daft as I don't get the sewing reference tw?

    Northing yet Shona except annoying stuff about Elbow - I would have loved to be there.
