What a brilliant Monday to be British...

Chris Evans | 10:32 UK time, Monday, 10 September 2012

Hey, aren't they all but particularly today. Hamilton at Monza, McIlroy in the golf, Murray tonight in New York and The Olympic and Paralympic Parade this afternoon. The only thing is I wish the kids could all get to see it live. Hopefully some sympathetic teachers might stick the telly on. In other news, Robbie was on the show today, listen again via the iplayer and at the Radio 2 Website, relaxed, happy and excited about his new music and his baby due anytime from now. And CarFest North was another magical weekend of cars, food, music, planes and dancing diggers and their arena pals.

God bless Great Britain and Northern Ireland and all who sail in her.

Tally ho. Gotta go.

Peace and Love




Shhh - whisper....

I think (still whispering) that it's gonna be a gorgeous weekend for an awful lot of us. It's suntan weather down South today already. And my wife who is already oop North with the boys on the way to glamping at CarFest says it's stunning blue sky there as well. This is all rather bloomin' good news for one and all. And it's the finale of The Paralympics - plus The Parade Of Champions which is taking place in London on Monday. Which we hope to feature a lot on the programme a few hours earlier. As well as, of course, the small ingredient of Robbie Williams available for a bit of breaky banter. He's hand delivering his brand new single for us to spin. As David Jacobs might say:

How (absolutely) delightful.

Have a fab weekend.

Peace and Love
