So spring has come and just about gone, the football season’s over and the show has taken its usual 3 week summer break, to return for its new series.  We always take the opportunity to refresh the running order, add a new jingle or two and one or two new features, and also give the web site a bit of a refresh aswell.

That’s always the plan anyway.  The website hasn’t looked good for a while now and this time, it will be revamped for the better with a new look that will stay the course. 

Any new running order takes a little time to settle in and although we started moving things around slightly towards the end of the last series, it will take a little time before things flow nicely again.  It’s not the same every week of course, we have special guests in from time to time and on Sunday 3 July, we’ll welcome Cheryl Baker from Bucks Fizz to the show.  She’ll be talking about winning Eurovision and celebrating the 30th anniversary with a special evening in July.  I’ll also be asking her about her TV presenting alongside Roy Castle on Record Breakers.  I was lucky enough to meet Roy when he came many years ago to open the Basingstoke Carnival and he must have been one of the nicest guys in show biz.  On holiday earlier this month, I happened to find a copy of his autobiography and it’s a book that’s well worth a read.  As well as his battle against cancer which he sadly finally lost, there’s lots of other stories and anecdotes about his busy life performing.
