    Studio 6A

  • Sarah kennedy MBE has now moved into the new studios. They...

    ... have no piano
    ... are IKEA-ish

    ... and pale green walls
    (The old studio is below)

    After a two-week sojourn - which she says feels more like six weeks! - Sarah is back where she belongs on the British airwaves.

  • One of Much Dearly Beloved's (aka Adrian's) best features is his nose. In fact, he has a fantastic nose, much like the Duke of Wellington's. However, Sarah would like to know why it never gets sun burnt. In comparison, her small nose is currently red, like a Gerry Cottle clown's hooter.
  • SK watched the Children in Need programme last night with Terry Wogan and Natasha Kaplinsky and has come to the conculsion that Ruby Wax is v. annoying.
  • A horse called Artie Shiller came up trumps for SK at the New York races. The next day, the hotel room had a delightful smell of hot dogs and onions.

    Hot doggie
  • Win a weekend with SK!

    From the BBC Children in Need website:

    "Sarah Kennedy fans get your cheque book ready - this is your chance to spend a weekend in London, with Sarah and Adrian as your hosts.

    You and your partner will check in at the world-famous Goring Hotel on Friday, 6th of January, or Friday the 13th of January, next year. You'll spend two nights in a top suite at the late Queen Mother's favourite hotel with its award-winning restaurant.

    You'll have time to enjoy the chocolates, flowers and personalised bottles of champagne you'll find in your room, courtesy of Weatherby's. Sarah and Adrian will meet you for drinks and whisk you off for dinner, at Shepherd's restaurant just round the corner, or the equally famous Langham Restaurant in London's Piccadilly - the choice is yours!

    The next day, after a slap-up full English, you'll visit the Radio 2 studios here and record your very own "It's Showtime" jingle to be played out the following week on Radio 2. After lunch you'll go to the Apollo theatre to see a matinee performance of the critically acclaimed Mary Stewart. Then you'll go backstage to meet the main actors: Harriet Walter and Janet McTeer. You'll spend Saturday evening on the town with Sarah and Adrian, enjoying drinks and dinner.

    The next day you'll enjoy the famous Sunday lunch at the Goring Hotel, courtesy of chef Derek Quelch. If you're having trouble deciding what to choose from the menu, perhaps your guests can help you make up your mind - joining you for lunch will be Fran Godfrey, Alan Dedicoat, Lynn Bowles and John Marsh and his wife Janet.

    After all this, it's time to go home and wait for Monday to hear yourself on Radio 2!

    With grateful thanks to the Goring Hotel, the Apollo Theatre and everyone else involved in donating this lot to Children in Need."

  • GOSSIP - THE POEM

    As performed by Sarah Kennedy MBE

    Gossip - as seen on TVMy name is Gossip.
    I have no respect for justice.
    I maim without killing.
    I break hearts and ruin lives.
    I am cunning and malicious
    and gather strength with age.
    The more I am quoted, the more I am believed.
    My victims are helpless.
    They cannot protect themselves against me
    because I have no name and no face.
    To track me down is impossible.
    The harder you try, the more elusive I become.
    I am nobody's friend.
    Once I tarnish a reputation, it's never the same.
    I topple governments and wreck marriages.
    I ruin careers and cause sleepless nights,
    heartaches and indigestion.
    I make innocent people cry in their pillows.
    Even my name hisses.
    I am called Gossip.
    I make headlines and headaches.
    Before you repeat a story, ask yourself:
    Is it true? Is it harmless?
    Is it necessary?
    If is isn't, don't repeat it.

    She's only gone and done it!

    Rise Ma'amSarah Kennedy got her fully-deserved MBE on Thursday.

    Speaking afterwards, she said: "It's lovely to get it. It's quite undeserved really because it's programmes I love doing and I get paid for."

    At the time, SK threw the letter announcing the honour in the rubbish, mistaking it for a piece of election campaigning! She retrieved if after reflecting that it was on "very expensive paper".

    "I took it out and it was covered in tomato ketchup. I had to sit down I was so shocked," she said.

    As listened to the by The Queen

    She said: "The Queen said she enjoyed listening to me."

    Anyway, this is what it says about Sarah...

    Sarah Mary Kennedy MBE is a British broadcaster, born in 1950. She began her career at BBC Radio 2 in the 1970s, and then became famous as the host of Game For A Laugh on ITV for several years from 1981. Other television work included the short-lived BBC current affairs programme Sixty Minutes and the ITV game show Busman's Holiday. As her TV career declined, she returned to Radio 2, where she has hosted the weekday early morning show since 1993. She is widely unpopular with the station's younger listeners, who perceive her as a throwback to an earlier age of Radio 2, but she still has her fans, among whom she is known as "Bunty Bagshaw" (an allusion to the Joyce Grenfell or Arthur Marshall type of jolly-hockey-sticks girls' boarding school character).

    In the Queens Birthday honours 2005, she was awarded the MBE for services to broadcasting.

    Sarah Kennedy MBE is one of the few female presenters to have her own daily show on UK national radio.

    Her 'Much Beloved' husband is a popular character in the show thanks largely to his hilariously inept gambling problem.

    5 June 2005

    Sarah Kennedy has rightly been recognised as creating the oft-used term 'white van man' by becoming honorary president of the Ford Transit Owners Club. Here is the press release from Ford:

    Sarah -- vans do it for herLONDON , 1 June, 2005 – It was an historic moment when BBC Radio 2 Presenter, Sarah Kennedy, coined the phrase "white van man". Love them or hate them, thanks to Sarah they have become part of the English language and a way of life on British roads. To mark her contribution to the van industry and with a sweet irony, the first Ford Transit Owners Club has made her its honorary president.

    On receiving her presidency from the cab of a van, Sarah said: "As president, I shall be keeping an extra-beady eye out for White Van Man antics!"

    Peter Lee has founded the Owners Club to mark 40 years of success of the Ford Transit; the only van in Britain to have been a market leader its entire lifetime. He said: "Due to my van archives and collections of thousands of models, I have always had dealings with van owners and the commercial vehicle team at Ford. Over the years, I must have been asked 1000 times whether an Owners Club existed. Transit's 40 th birthday this year has confirmed that I am not alone in my passion for the van. To have Sarah as our honorary president is a double whammy for all things that are wonderful and British!"
