Baton passed from Mayo
Think Richard is really the true successor to Mr Mayo...funny articulate and well read....was worried for a while for my afternoon listening when Mayo left....worried no more!
Big shoes to fill
Simon Mayo was a legend a brilliant presenter. I was not impressed after the first podcast, I felt that Mr Bacon was so patronising. I actually shouted at the radio. I have to say that he has grown on me so much so that I really look forward to his daily installments. Brilliant well worth subscribing to this intelligent and witty presenter. Thanks
Great fun, bacon at his best whilst being informative!
