I have not been able to listen to your LBC show to date (rural northern Cambridgeshire and 128K dial up is as good as it gets here), but I'm intrigued between the selection of the Missing Person item for LBC tonight and your earlier blogpost in which you are clearly not in favour of the proposed cut.

Do you choose topics for LBC that are merely in the news or ones in which you have a personal opinion that you wish to promote? I don't mind either way (how could I? I'm not a listener) but it would be useful to know in case I suddenly find myself in receipt of a broadband connection.

Quentin Letts is always great fun to listen to. I look forward to his appearance.

Hightory, hope you enjoyed it.

Thorpe. To be honest it's a mixture. It does depend somewhat on the news agenda. This story was in the papers yesterday and no one else had covered it on LBC. I do pick subjects I am interested in, but only if they fit the general format and tone of the programme. But often the programme content is dictated by the main news stories of the day - eg Fire or tube strikes.

Hope you will be able to listen one day. If you have Sky or are on Virgin Media you can listen through your TV.

Iain, thank you for your answer. I don't have Sky, simply because I watch about 10 hours of TV a year and for me, the £20 a month sub is not worth it. Virgin Media don't come up the farm track with their fibre optic (and if they read this, they'll work out they won't be getting any of my money either). It's radio all the way for me, except the Sunday Times from the local garage weekly.
