I'm sure there was one before, but I went back a few pages and didn't unearth it, so here we go.

 

Radio 4 Extra tonight at 11pm: An Eric Idle solo show from 1974 that hasn't been broadcast since. Eric plays all the characters in a series of sketches.

The lost Genius of Judee Sill, broadcast yesterday on Radio 4, repeated on Saturday. A very good 30 minute documentary about a hugely talented musician who lived the kind of life most of us wouldn't even want to have nightmares about. Alcoholism, alleged sexual abuse, drug abuse, drug dealing, prostitution, armed robbery, jail, a broken spine, years of living in pain, a final, fatal overdose... and yet her songs are uplifting and beautiful.

I'd heard of her, but have never heard her stuff or known of her life history. I'll check it out on the i-player.

Last month, I had to fill in a survey about radio listening habits over a one-week period. A bloke came round knocking on doors and asked everybody on my street to do it. He gave everybody who consented a £5 note.

That would be an easy fiver, don't think I've listened to any in the last week. :D

Odd how different we all are. I haven't listened to any radio at all for about the same length of time

RL triumphed, but Histon aren't all that.

Given the Warriors' lack of consistency, I'd call that a result!

Ken Bruce as I go about my daily tasks: everything stops for pop master; "I work for a local printing company for my sins, my partner is the lovely Julie and we have five children between us from our previous manages and yes I'm ion a Dave Clark Five tribute band. I usually manage 24 points." 

Paul Jones and Bob Harris for sitting down and listening to

Jeremy Vine as a reference point for what the nation's knuckle draggers are thinking

 

I used to listen to R4 and five live but now only occasionally tune in don't know why.

wouldn't dream of listening to radio Leeds rugby league output. Although I'm sure it's better than the John Boyd years.

In the early mornings in my van, I was motivated to switch to Real Radio by my absolute dislike of Liz Green on Radio Leeds and Chris Evans on Radio 2. Dixie and Gail were pretty good on Real Radio. However, the station has been taken over by Heart Radio and Gail has got the chop. She has been replaced by some anodyne woman whose raison d'etre is not saying anything inoffensive or indicating any presence of a personality.

 

I've just given up listening between 6.30am and 9am. Afterwards, I like Ken Bruce on Radio 2 in mid-morning and Martin Kellner on Radio Leeds at dinnertime.

 

Bring back Johnnie Walker!!

I have not listened to Pop Master for twelve years, but I am glad it has not changed a bit.

Whilst on tour, with my band, I've worked through the entire back catalogue of "The Frank Skinner Show" which is on Absolute and has been cracking listening, but not a patch on RHLSTP, which is a bit too strong for radio.

RHLSTP!

 

I believe a new series starts soon of that, I know there are a couple of recordings before the end of September anyway.

Yes, I looked at going but they clash with some of mine.

can't do without my daily fix of RADCLIFFE AND MACONIE on six.

 

I don't listen to them at the moment, because I can't get digital radio in my van. However, when they were on Radio 2, I got the impression that there was a bit of tension between them.

 

Big up to Maconie however, he and Andy Burnham have heroically combined to keep the UK's black hairdye industry afloat.

Marc Riley on 6Music at 7pm is a really good show. As is Tom Robinsons twitter playlist thing.

And the old concerts/documentaries on 6Music in the middle of the night.
