Heaven knows I'm no fan of Vaughan, but Sitton is making an even bigger idiot of himself. His Twitter feed is astonishing, he really can't grasp why people formed the view he's a bit of a tit. Mind...

Ha!

Firstly, the channel numbering is very silly indeed. Secondly, it doesn't matter that they've doubled the size of the studio. All they need are two presenters and a desk. And thirdly, as for 'a...

No problem with the 60s and 70s shows but the 80s show doesn't work. None of them should be repeated. If Bob Shennan wants Sara Cox on Radio Two, fair enough, but give her a straight up-and-down show...

It's not listed in the weekday schedule: could just be an oversight.
