Radio 2: The Hosts

CARRINGTON, Desmond

Adjust that webcam, Des!!LONG-SERVING wheel-taker of Two’s Bisto-centric Sunday lunchtime inspiration-freeness All Time Greats, maintaining similar slightly over-concerned patter no doubt perfected in his days with Forces Radio, and probably delivered to the exact same audience too. Now broadcasts live from customised (ie it has a webcam)¬†shack in the Grampian Mountains; recent polling revealed the most played ‘Great’ to be, not surprisingly, Begin The Beguine. The Radio Times once printed a letter from a concerned correspondent worried about the effect of a gruelling three-hour stint on Des’s health. He’s only playing records!

    Classic old-school Radio 2 fodder. Reminds me of teas at my grandparents’ house and therefore, rather like when locals protest at the bulldozing of a church with only two remaining members, I’d be gutted if Des was pulled off the air despite never listening to his shows.
