When We Were Younger and Free

Simon Mayo


Well hey, cloudy skies, poor temperatures here. Classic February behaviour. Looking forward to March already. Winter wardrobe already tired and in need of some spring rejuvenation...

The very eminent Simon Callow is on today. What a fine actor he is and what a fine writer he is too. A brain the size of a planet and so obviously he chooses to spend his time talking to us. He's told us about Dickens and Shakespeare before and now it's Wagner. Yes that's right, sadly neglected by the Radio 2 playlist for many decades, Richard Wagner needs to be a part of your life and Simon Callow will tell you why. Rocking that Ring Cycle already...

And Jo Whiley's big BBC Introducing show from Maida Vale is tonight. Along with Jamie Cullum and Bob Harris you'll hear their pick of the new talent out there. So INTRODUCING tunes please, songs with introductions in them will be our contribution to the scheme.
