BBC Radio 2 announces schedule changes – Tony Blackburn takes over Sounds Of The 60s


Alan Esdaile… If they won’t let Brian Matthew do it, then Tony will be OK. Moving to new time of 6.00am – 8.00am

Graham Belchamber… Long live Brian ! Shame he has departed but I am pleased Tony has taken over.

Carol Arnold… oh dear, prefer Brian !

Jim Breeds… A bit early in the day for me!

Mick Knights… Obvious choice really as he’s the only veteran broadcaster still alive and not serving a jail sentence!!!

Alan Esdaile… Anyone listen to Sounds Of The 60’s this morning? Tony is sounding more hyper and punchier then when he did Pick Of The Pops. Music sounding Great. Oops just finished, too early missed most of it!  Did he mention Brian? Brian Matthew will be on at 7 p.m. on Easter Sunday with a special programme.

Carol Arnold… missing Brian Matthew SOTS!!

Leigh Wieland-Boys… Why did I not know it started at 6am! Been listening on catch-up 1hr 41mins in, TB is doing good, but miss BM. And yes, he did mention Brian 

Alan Esdaile… Just heard Brian Matthew will be on at 7 p.m. on Easter Sunday with a special programme.

Jim Breeds…. 6am is far too early for this programme’s elderly demographic. We’re all asleep at that time. Well, I am! I told him this on Twitter, but it is one of the few tweets he gets that he hasn’t replied to. I wonder why!?

Mick O’Dowd… Still asleep at that ungodly hour as I expect many more BM & SOTS fans were.

Jim Breeds… BM’s show started later though, didn’t it? I sometimes caught it in my car if I was going anywhere on a Saturday morning. Think it was something like 8am to 10 am. Much more sensible.

Jan Warren… Sleeeeeeeeeeeeeping ……… sorry, Zzzzzzzzzzzz…….
