Who is The Old Woman? Many have asked but the answer is lost in the mists of time. Details of her birth are shrouded in mystery - what is known is that she has embarked on a lifetime of study and contemplation, embracing a broad scope of social study such as knitting, bingo, boiled sweets and 'Friday Night Is Music Night' on her favourite radio station.

Now her teachings - on subjects such as the UK garage scene, WAP phones and go-ped scooters - are available to millions of eager Radio 2 disciples who know her to be a 'hip operator'.

The venerable entity who is known only to the world as Old Woman can regularly be heard sharing her wisdom and ancient knowledge on a vast range of modern issues every week on 'Steve Wright in the Afternoon'.
