BBC Radio 2 – Sundays

… and yes, you do have to read the title whilst doing so in the style of the Radio 2 jingle hehe! (and with regards to the news jingle I’ve linked to – naturally I think that Fenella Fudge has the best name in the world hehe!)

Recently at work, I’ve been a little tired of my usual choice of radio station, Magic, and so have hit iPlayer in search of the Proms and other radio broadcasts. Incidentally, the Doctor Who prom is AMAZING!

Yesterday, I happened to come across the ever fantastic Michael Ball’s ‘Sunday Brunch show‘ (they really should have publicised that a lot more!) and then today I came across Elaine Paige’s show (which I’d already known about for a few years, but only just had chance to listen to her).

Michael’s show is on between 11:00 and 13:00 on a Sunday, followed right after by Elaine Paige’s broadcast which is until 14:30.

I must say, I much prefered Michael Ball’s show, though both were excellent. It’s unusual for me to enjoy a show with spoken content as well as music (as I’m at work, I tend not to want to focus on what’s being said too much) however both of these shows have broken the mould for me- hurrah!

Both shows are currently on BBC iPlayer, and are updated each week. A recommended listen from me; especially if you’re really into your musical theatre as I am!

  1. The jingles you’ve linked to is the Steve Wright in the Afternoon theme, followed by the news jingle… not sure why you need to though???

    My favourite news reader is Alan Dedicote. Elaine Paige and Micheal Ball are great shows; but my favourite one is Johnnie Walker’s Sounds of the ’70s. Sundays 3-5 on BBC Radio 2.
