Being of an age that puts me firmly in the BBC Radio 2 demographic, I find I’m enjoying listening to many of the same DJs that I did while growing up with Radio 1. And, indeed, much of the same music. Not all programmes, mind; I generally find Steve Wright’s Sunday love songs a little (more...)

A lobster walks into a bar. The landlord sees him, and shouts above the crowd: "Hey, you. Out. You're barred." The lobster replies: "Eh? Why? What have I done?"

As you'll know, I'm rarely one to get angry. Irritated, yes. Narked, sometimes. Annoyed frequently.
