I’ve just heard my name being announced on the News Quiz by Sandi Toksvig and my cutting being read out by Charlotte Green. My life is complete.
I’m now used to the idea of no more C. Green and H. Cass on Radio 4. This will be tough – they have been part of my listening life since I can remember (I was brought up on R4): they are my On-Airy Godmothers. I hope they’ll come back to do guest appearances on the News Quiz.
At least, I thought, there will still be Alice Arnold’s sexy tones. But I’ve just read that she is leaving as well.
Peter Donaldson – please don’t have thoughts about retiring any more.
