Lessons learned from today's show
  • The 'prickliness' between Lynn Bowles and Sarah continued unabated this morning. Lynn maliciously blamed SK for giving her marmalade jam from the BBC canteen, when she asked for peach -- an easy mistake.

    Lessons learned from Wednesday's show
  • Sarah had a flu jab last year, and then the next day she got the flu!

  • Sarah's shoes were killing her this morning.
  • Speaking to Patrick the other day, owner of Pomegranates, Sarah learnt that Peter Sellers would come in 14 days in a row and always refused a free meal. He was an absolute charmer. Whereas Dustin Hoffman just couldn't sit still.

  • 18 September 2003

    Flamstead - always traffic-lockedLessons learned from today’s show
  • Sarah has to make do with a broken chair and a pitch dark studio for every one of her Radio 2 shows.
  • The other day Sarah had an extraordinarily vivid dream starring a ‘Stephen Tutt’ – but, Sarah has never heard of nor met such a person. Strange.
  • There were more taffic problems in Flamstead this morning.
  • SK is off filming a wildlife show for BBC Scotland today. They said she could wear anything she liked as long as it’s not blue.
  • 17 September 2003

  • 16 September 2003

    Ferret – ferretingLessons learned from today’s show
  • Sarah’s having glazier problems. To be more specific, her glassman has no putty.
  • The other day, "Much Beloved" went away for the weekend, so Sarah had a quick look inside his bag. Lo and behold, inside were five pairs of highly-coloured boxer shorts. "You can never have too many" was "Much beloved's" response.
  • Allinson is "looking very gay in white tee-shirt" today and "smells delicious".
  • On taking over the mike Allinson explained that it was his pheromones.
  • Sarah's birth date is a secret!

    Allinson -- loves itLessons learned from yesterday’s show
  • Sarah’s been employing a plumber who enjoys the odd bit of ferreting!
  • The frisson’s back! Don’t blame it on the boogie, blame it on Richard Allinson, dribbling down Sarah’s neck again. "You should see his shirt," said Sarah as he waltzed into the studio, "it looks like he’s dabbed himself into a cauldron of pea and mint soup. It suits him though. He’s got a tan."
  • We’ll have to wait a bit longer for Sarah’s forthcoming book on blonde jokes.

    Jungle Barry - or is it Lord Lucan?Lessons learned from today's show

  • 10 September 2003

    Doris Day – or is it our Sarah?Lessons learned from today’s show

    Lessons learned from yesterday’s show
  • Sarah spent Monday in the company of her very good friend Charles Foster, of armed forces radio.
  • SK has never seen Frasier (she “can’t see everything”, she said to the incredulous TV addict Lynn Bowels, “I have to go to bed early”).
  • Sarah has announced that from now on the show will be a “David Blaine-free zone”.

  • 8 September 2003

    Miss Marple - not as funny as Eddie Murphy, according to SarahLessons learned from today's lovely show
  • Sarah's been ill lately ("chestically challenged"), and today was wearing glasses after having been on the Night Nurse.
  • Surprisingly, there is no cormorant bird sound of the RSPB bird-calls CD.
  • SK and Adrian read all the newspapers, as they "all have something to offer".
  • Sarah sat down to watch Miss Marple on Saturday night, only to find Welsh football on the box! She had to settle for Trading Places with Eddie Murphy, who was "simply brilliant".
  • 5 September 2003

    A fox keeps on urinating over Sarah Kennedy's BotLessons learned from today's show
  • Amazingly, Sarah's co-producer Nickie came in wearing brown spots today. By pure coincidence, SK had blue spots on and even Wogan was wearing a spotty tie. Only one person let them down. That's right. It was Lynn Bowels.
  • The only thing SK sees in the mornings on her lonely way to work is a fox, who persists in urinating on her car.
  • A kind-hearted listener sent Miss Kennedy a kite today.
  • She will try and fly it this weekend during her weekend in Sussex.
  • 4 September 2003

    Loofah - don't use whilst listening to Sarah's show tunesLessons learned from today's show
  • After listening to this morning's show tune (Good Morning, Good Morning), Sarah hoped that nobody was in the bath "loofahering" to it. After all, they'd have no skin left!
  • And after having to listen to another of Lynn Bowels' depressing travel bulletins, Sarah has decided to buy a donkey.
  • 3 September 2003

    Lessons learned from today's all-too brief show
  • Sarah quite likes 10CC's Dreadlock Holiday. She's not normally a fan, because their music can be quite "vigorous".
  • Sarah also loves sausages and mash.
  • Following on from yesterday's peculiar pong, Pearl called in to say that Sarah should dry her jumpers outside -- not indoors.
  • Amazingly, the studio stank again today. It was as if someone had had a "hard-boiled egg party". Not very nice.

    Lessons learned from yesterday's show
  • Sarah's alarm didn't go off yesterday.
  • There was a funny smell in the studio, which emanated from SK! She was sure it was her jumper, which causes the stench when she "warms up".
  • Talking off clothes, Lynne Bowels was wearing a "ratting jacket" as she was off grass shooting later.
  • Sarah has been invited to Jimmy Young's book launch.

    Ken Bruce - hairy half-wit (nice jumper though)Lessons learned from today's entertaining show
  • By her own admission, Sarah was caught "with her pants down" after playing Deacon Blue -- she was too busy talking to Wogan!
  • SK would give her current sleep pattern "one out of ten".
  • Sarah's cat, Hector (who was named by the R2 listeners) is now 2 and a half. SK told us all about her "funny little chap" who always seems to have "half a tree stuck up his rectum" (ie, he always has bits of leaves stuck to his long white fur coat).
  • Hector (who has topaz eyes) currently thinks he's a meercat. He spends his long summer days down by the Kennedy lake, trying to catch dragonflies.
  • Unfortunately for Lynn Bowels, Ken Bruce is back today -- according to Sarah, Ken has a "wonderful wit".
