If I listen to the radio, it’s generally Radio 4. But I’ve been listening to Radio 2, due to it being left on for my in-laws’ budgie, and I’ve liked some of it. So I had it on in the car on Wednesday night and I listened to Mike Harding’s show. I loved it! I wouldn’t have expected that I’d like folk, roots and acoustic but apparently I do. I listened to some of The Radcliffe and Maconie Show afterwards which I also enjoyed. It was good to hear Noddy Holder on the radio, if only to hear a Wolves accent on the wireless. Decent music too.

Just William: Pursuin’ Happiness, The Revenge. Love Just William as a kid, still do now.
