Absolutely. I've thought since day one that Janice Long would be a much better presenter for this. I gave up on it a while back after one Sara Cox incoherent mumbling too many.

I think the tone of Radios 4 & 5Live have diverged to such an extent that a merger wouldn't work, although some specific programmes could conceivably move across. Doing anything that affects Radios 3...

No, because BT have bought up events that were free-to-air in order to compete.

BT's excreable coverage is a malign pustule on the face of sports broadcasting. The sooner they get back to...

Right, unless BT offer me a very good deal when I call to cancel, I shall advise them exactly where they can insert their awful football coverage. I tolerate Humphrey et al - 24 is a joke.

Great to hear the Birthday Spread back on H&J the other day. I always enjoyed Andy's tortured explanation of each candidate. Hope they do this more regularly again.

Absolutely. I used to watch Corrie and Eastenders in the 80s and 90s but as the number of episodes increased, I stopped. The storylines became sillier, people's characters changed to fit the story...

Perhaps because A Very British Coup was written by Chris Mullin: if he wasn't Labour MP for Sunderland at the time then he was certainly already active in left-wing causes.

Linehan's work is littered with film references and a whole episode of Father Ted referenced One Foot in the Grave. So this was clearly a nod to Fawlty Towers.

Pleased that Sky has won the lion's share of the rights. I have been hugely disappointed by the standard of BT's offering. Sky is the best at covering football by a mile.

Why? What possible local relevance does it have? At least the evening show is supposed to be about bringing together the best bits from local stations.

This is the sort of programme that Garry Bushell spent years trying to get more of on TV. It was dated even in 1989.

A confession: despite the extraordinary shiny suit, I laughed quite a few times...

I wasn't so keen on their Talk Radio work, but the Big Noise (Sunday mornings on Newstalk 1152) remains one of my all-time favourite 'LBC' programmes.

Why would you move the most listened to show on nighttime radio (Alex Lester), and Bob Harris, just to make room for Richard Allinson? I think he will fit in perfectly on Magic. He's competent enough...

Logically, he should come back to his old 8pm Saturday slot...

Private Eye alleged that that was the intention, but it ran up against the 'not enough women on Radio Two' problem.

Very odd piece of scheduling: wouldn't it make more sense to put the Non-League Show out live at 8 instead of recording it at that time, and then putting the In Short filler show on at 5am?
