Well here's a blog live from the back of a taxi heading to a train and another school of bright eager young things. When they set off to school this morning ready to fill their heads with Geog. Hist. Eng. etc little did they know that they'd get some radio bloke telling them about his book for 40 minutes. I shall smile and wave my arms a lot and hope this passes for an entertaining alternative to academic rigour. Tea and biscuits will then be served in the staff room and the state of education/the BBC/both will be discussed. And music requests taken.

Then back to R2 for some DT with Nigel performing with some tagliatelle and assorted gubbins to make it more difficult for Matt to follow. And it seems about right to do autumnal oldies. The equinox is this weekend (Saturday I think) so equal day and night etc and the tilt of the earth's axis is inclined neither towards the sun or way from it. But you know all this stuff. Let's just play Jean Michelle Jarre and be done with it!

Have a stimulating and well-managed Thursday, see you after 5
