I think there will be significant changes on Saturdays once Brian Matthew retires. If Tony Blackburn eventually moves to Saturday breakfast it would free up a slot earlier in the day and Paul could...

Good to see that he's resuming Counterpoint as well. First record back on November 14th? I reckon 'Royals' by Lorde.

Much depends on whether SOTS remains in its current slot in the post Matthew era (not likely IMO), moves to another weekend slot or is part of an extended Johnnie Walker combined 60s/70s show. I like...

Not surprisingly Sky have picked a solitary low key Super Sunday game on Ryder Cup weekend. Presumably the amount of coverage on 5 live depends entirely on when the Ryder Cup outcome is known....

I liked Ma Baker, Brown Girl in the Ring, Rasputin and Mary's Boy Child. Never felt they had much to offer afterwards. Agree about Cliff - greatest record of his career.

I'd expect Wales v Bosnia Herzegovina to be a commentary on Friday 10th October. Both Scottish games too although current events might determine editorial judgement on these.

You won't get a more uninspiring draw than that. The upside for Sky is a greater prospect of heavyweight clashes later in the Autumn.

It would become, for about a decade from 1974, the greatest pop radio station I've ever heard. The words of David Symonds at the end of his first breakfast show link are appropriate for Attenborough...
