Radio 2's "Special" Day.

Well I made sure I was near a radio for the promised" Best of Sundays" live today on Radio 2. I did think that we would have had a flavour of those past days when entertained by Benny Green ,Alan Dell, and certainly some jazz...how wrong I was! Firstly Jacobs & Ball do not make good bedfellows, why on earth didn't they couple Desmond Carrington with Jacobs? he was there at his home studio in Scotland and the short interview he was granted was pathetically short.. Most of the stuff David selected was excellent, particularly Gordon Jenkin's This is all I ask, sung by Matt Monro, and later a cracking number from Mack & Mabel, I Won't Send Roses. The Michael Ball choices were mediocre to say the least...no quality sounds as far as I was concerned. You would have thought that for just this one hour Radio 2 would have given us the sort of listening that has been such a feature of past Sundays in the years of the great presenters.

I'm inclined to agree with you Liz.
Hopefully the six O'clock slot with Jools, Jamie and Clare may be more in line with our tastes.
