Those with soft tops have (on my journey's evidence) been showing off today. Their journey might be slow and fume-filled but by heck they want you to see they're catching a few April-strength rays. Me, I'm in a poky enclosed minicab bouncing and swerving around London's most speed-humped streets. Jealous?
Another set of innocent pupils are about to sit through my totally terrific talk and wonder why they couldn't be in Maths.
Then a jaunty return to R2 towers where Lisa Stansfield drops by for the show. 25 years after topping the charts with All Around The World she has a new album and is singing the soulful stuff she became associated with. On the basis of what I've heard, her voice is as rich as ever and she's very welcome back.
And oldies please on MUMBLING. A top subject I think and all because Jamaica Inn viewers couldn't hear the actors dialogue. This is quite a regular complaint with viewers and you would imagine one that is easy to rectify. Radio sound folk always think TV sound is inferior anyway, so we all nod wisely at this point. Mumbling, incomprehensible tunes welcome.
Essex beckons. See you at 5
