Farewell to Sally from Drivetime

Not exactly today but she doesn't work fridays and I'm off for the next two weeks. Sally has decided to call it a day at the Radio 2 Drivetime travel desk after years of hard slog and devotion to the M25 as people drive home. Afternoons will not be the same! What will I do without someone to find an innuendo in every sentence? Who can match the throaty appeal of the trucker's pal?  (she's snorting at that one obviously) Even from afar I always thought Sal had one of the best voices on the radio and it has been great to have her on the team (stop it Sally). How can I mark our last show together? Why, SALLY TRAFFIC oldies of course. What greater honour...

That being said, Nigel's offering of Sweet Soy Beef Cheeks might not be tailor made to Sal's tastes. There is a mango salad on the side, so maybe she'll have to make do with that.  A few green leaves and a slice of fruit is not exactly a gold watch but maybe better for you...

Keep cool, drink water, mind the gap, fight the power.

See you at 5 (still no shorts).
