Happy 70th Birthday, Sir Michael Terence Wogan, You Old Bore
When Wogan's eyes are smiling
He'll play some shit by Sting.
In the lilt of Wogan's laughter,
You can hear Katie Melua sing.
When Wogan's heart is happy,
All the world seems dull and grey.
And when Wogan's eyes are smiling,
Sure, you just wish he'd go away.

Terry Wogan followed by Jimmy Young. Radio 2 always seemed to be on during my school holidays. My mum had the same holidays as me. Those were the dinner lady years.
I do so envy those born later whose mums would listen to the groovy sounds of Radio 1.
My dad never listened to the radio at home. Maybe it was on at work and he never told me about it. He did seem to know a bit about modern music. He must have heard it somewhere.
