Listen
Playing: Blue Monday by New Order
BBC Radio 2

Morning to all bloggers, new and vet. Hope weekend was tip-top. Interesting to read of bloggers in the audience for the 5L show (hello Paul, Amelia, Zoe and Deebee-is that everyone?) and glad everyone seems to have had a good time. We did indeed have to disappear pdq, though as it turns out I could have hung around, walked to Radio Sheffield and done some shopping on the way. We had the highest quality cupboard to broadcast from (technically an NCA studio) and some lovely helpful staff to help us onto the air. Splendid chats for 2 hours and you might remember the young lad who was going to watch his brother play for Edinburgh against Saracens. I said we would look out for his result and cheer him on his way. Well unfortunately it turned out to be a 0-45 loss for our ARF friend and his brother so that didn't quite work out quite the way he wanted.
So a new week and a new show today with Suzanne Vega singing live. 7 million records sold and 7 grammys too, her voice is as warm as it ever was. She is re-recording her back catalogue which is not uncommon amongst artists who don't own their original recordings, but what is different is her release of the songs thematically. 'Close up Volume 4, Songs of Family' is her latest CD and a delight. It is also 25 years since 'Solitude Standing and her song 'Luka' became a most unlikely hit. You'll hear her after 6.
And songs today (as Felix Baumgartner got his day last week) for DOGWALKERS. There is a documentary on BBC2 tonight 'Wonderland:Walking with Dogs' and it is, by all accounts, rather wonderful. So dogwalkers get their day, your help please.
Have a friendly and optimistic Monday, see you after 5.

    Another fly-by - choir practice night so will listen to the show tomorrow morning. Congrats to menshees!

    Just thought, that if you enjoyed Mr Baumgartner's jump last night and if you like Lego (other plastic building/creating systems available etc) you might like to see this....

    Well done menshees - not many credits tonight but those that were mentionned were mostly bloggers - hooray!

    I claim an OSM for "You and me and a dog name Boo" - at least I was on the right track!

    We had a visit from Mr Fox tonight - while I was cooking the dinner, Mr said we had a visitor at the back door. When I looked to see who it was, there was a very handsome fox, staring through the glass to see what was going on indoors. Perhaps he could smell the chicken......

    He'll have to wait til tomorrow for the scraps which will disappear at a rate of knots, I'm sure!

    Late on parade tomorrow - the scales call for the weekly moment of torture ;0) and then I'm off to the dentist in the afternoon for more torture - physical and monetary!
    I'll try and pop in, inbetween, to see what the theme for choon-chasing is.

    Enjoy the rest of your evening one and all

    JW

    Evening all

    Missed the show tonight, but seems like it was a decent night for the blog.

    #79 Erica - no thunder stolen! Really. The wonderful wonderful thing about the blog is that it's not life-threatening in any way, and the people are so lovely. I don't think I've ever seen anyone getting their knickers in a twist for having songs "stolen" from them.

    Had to come back to apologise to JBG for stealing his thunder. My mensh should really have been his because I only seconded his suggestion.

    Sorry JBG
