iPlayer Radio What's New?

Nearly done

Yes yes it's Friday and another week done. Distinctly dodgy one health wise but I'm not sure you'd have noticed that; no passing presenters hauled in to fill in and no need to resort to extra long songs just yet.
Very short blog yesterday and far more posts. Hmmm. Maybe I should just write less and see what happens? My publisher might not want me to draw too many conclusions from that...
So 2 kids abed, one kid to school and we set off on the trip towards the ARF with a jolly jaunt to 5Live. We're into the season of movie show disruption however. Today we do the show live-streamed from 2 for an hour, it'll be a podcast from 4 and broadcast at 9. I hope that sounds clear. The main radio airwaves (and digital equivalents) are needed for the tennis and who can argue with that when you get matches like Nadal vs Rosol yesterday? Sportsmen and women rarely get days when everything they try comes off but the fifth set for the Czech seemed to be precisely that. In the zone indeed.
So then we need one of your fine choices to kick the Drivetime all requester off, a song to explode out of the radio and batter everyone into submission. Gentle and subtle is not quite what we are after.
Have a nifty and elegant Friday, see you at 5 (and online on 2 etc).

    Morning all

    Simon, no one would have guessed that you had to rise from your sick bed to do the shows - hope you have a better weekend than last!

    ARFO:

    KISS - Tom Jones

    YOU CAN LEAVE YOUR HAT ON - Tom Jones

    No real reason, except Kiss was played at my exercise class last night, and I realised I hadn't heard that version for ages!

    Nearly done? How apposite for my last day at work :o)

    Songs to explode out of the radio? Any of the following would make my (last) day:

    STATUS QUO - Paper Plane

    CHICAGO - 25 or 6 to 4

    SENSATIONAL ALEX HARVEY BAND - Delilah

    MADNESS - Wings of a Dove

    ISAAC HAYES - Shaft


    I'll hold off going to the pub until 5:05 just in case my luck's in for a change...

    Good Morning All :)

    Katy - Impressive list keeping again, from the previous blog. I'm still not keen on the current playlist A,B or indeed C, I wouldn't seek any of them out if they weren't foisted on me radio-wise, on a daily basis!

    ARFO suggestions...

    FEELS LIKE I'M IN LOVE - KELLY MARIE

    MODERN GIRL - MEATLOAF

    REBEL REBEL - DAVID BOWIE
