You've got that certain something. I only know this because the Muppets sang about it on their first album - my love of which got me nothing but derision from Ricky Gervais recently. However I am right and he is wrong. That album was a thing of genius and anyone who disagrees gets Sam the American Eagle set on them. All of this has nothing to do with the show apart from the word bass. Nigel is threatening to do something to do a dead sea bass (that's a sea bass that's dead, not a sea bass from the Dead Sea). Specifically he's performing a baked striker caponata and we'll love it or suffer the consequences.

 

Also today we will unveil some of the big names who will be staring in the BBC Proms in the Park. Yes it's September already!

 

And let's try songs for GOING/RETURNING HOME after Andy Murray made an emotional return to Dunblane to receive the freedom of Stirling. 'It feels good to be home' he said and that feeling has inspired many top songs. Feel free to choose some!

 

Until 5 then...
