    Great. Shame about Chris Evans, though.

      I’m not surprised Chris Evans is absent. His Breakfast Show stint did not go well. Four days a week and failing to turn up to present some of them. Not a good career highlight for him.

    Sorry, but I won’t be ‘celebrating’ 50 years of Radio 1, I shall be lamenting the passing of Radio London and the other offshore stations which this pale imitation sought to replace.
