To Sheffield ...

Via Retford. A direct train would have been fine but hey, I've never been to Retford so that might be a highlight. What delights will await from platform 2? I'm hoping for a cheese baguette or a packet of crisps at the very least. At least, post-Olympics, London stations look rather grand and swanky. Having breakfast at Kings Cross is actually a rather pleasant experience these days with a variety of healthy options and some chips for Matt if needed.

Sheffield bound because 5Live are doing one of their 'Octoberfest' dos. There is no beer or sausage involved (as far as I am aware), it is merely the name given to a series of outside broadcasts in one city and this year it is Sheffield. The good doctor and I are hosting the film show from The Crucible with a few hundred cheery and, hopefully, easily pleased listeners.

This means another ARF from someone else's studio. Never a happy state of affairs. It's like hosting a party in someone else's lounge; you're never quite sure where anything is, you hope you don't break anything and it usually smells funny. What comes out of the radio is hopefully exactly the same however and we shall endeavour to set up the weekend in style.

Your opening salvo would be appreciated and feel free to choose your favourite Bow Wow Wow song if you feel like it. You know you want to.

Have a satisfying and solid Friday. See you at 2&5.
