No, do you? I'm so glad, as I always felt awful for the writer (who I still think of as an awkward gangly 16 year old doing maths homework with my sister). I imagined everyone in the UK groaning and switching it off when it came on
Another fan of Cabin Pressure, here. Must admit to having missed several of recent series on R4 and had impression suave 'no 2' was voiced by different actor.
R4 has been using 11:30 slot on Mon, Wed, Fri for comedy of late. Have not been listening to R4 Extra as much, so have been missing Old Harry's Game, but glad it will come around again.
Whenever I put R4 Extra on, I've normally found myself in a drama, not comedy. Falco was on recently, and despite having heard that story before (going into non-Romanic areas of Germany) I thoroughly enjoyed listening again to those episodes.
Personally, I love Quote Unquote, and The Write Stuff, although I know both get pulled apart by comics and some listeners. I always find some interesting snippets from those programmes, and they complement my somewhat limited literature knowledge (I quit school at 16, so never read anything 'serious' as I went into courses on radio and then degree level computing).
I found last week's 'Chain Reaction' a bit lacklustre. Could have been two mates in the pub mulling over the darts or football results, in terms of interest to me (ie nil).
