"Either I'm old or Radio 2 has changed"

Probably the latter. Radio 2 is, in my opinion, the best of the BBC radio stations and for one simple reason: variety!

Where else can you find the dulcit tones of Mr Wogan waking you up, Mr Wright keeping you awake in the afternoon (ok, so he's a bit repetitive, but that's his style), an interesting documentary in the evening and the light-hearted warbling of Jonathon Ross on a weekend? Nowhere, and that's part of the charm. The mix of styles and personalities is excellent - where do the better DJ's go when they are no longer flavour of the month? Radio 2!

Reading the list of programmes is like reading a roll call of important broadcasters. Bob Harris (mmm, nice), Humphrey Lyttleton, Sarah Kennedy (well, enough said about her), Johnnie Walker - they're all there.

The mix of music is excellent as well - with many songs from the present, near past and long-since-past... something for everyone. If you have a broad taste in music, then you'll rarely find a show that doesn't suit!

Take your banging dance tunes and stuff 'em up Chris Moyles... I'm with Uncle Terry and the gang!
