Breezy (et al)
My comment was purely about making the programme.
John Leonard is absolutely right...
In a 58 Minute show, something has to go, and the chat is going to go in the bin quicker than the music.
I finally got to listen to the show this am.
Jolly good, I thought...and congrats to Mr Leonard for turning it around so quickly..(Maybe a mention for Mssrs Walter & Fountain would have been nice. Only joking!)
I actually thought the political element of the programme was just about right.
You have to remember that Radio 2 has to cater for all flavours of listeners, of many political persuasions, and it's remit is to entertain....
So, Not perfect....but, as an old pro....well done Smooth Ops, You'll never please everyone, but, I enjoyed hearing it.
Tune into Kershaw over the next couple of weeks, and you can hear what I've been up to!!!
