Joanna on the French & Saunders Radio 2 show

French And Saunders
Bank Holiday Monday 3 January
3.00-5.00pm BBC RADIO 2


Much-loved comedians Dawn French and Jennifer Saunders return to BBC Radio 2 this Bank Holiday Monday, with the last of three festive specials... and this time, the ladies are broadcasting live.

Talking to Simon Mayo recently, Dawn said: "[the] one on 3 January is going to be live. Sorry just ate a bit of the chair with my bottom when I said that. That's a bit scary!"

In today's show they catch up with the "Ab Fab" Joanna Lumley. She talks to them down the line from New York about her current Broadway success and the delights of Christmas and New Year in Manhattan.

In the studio they are joined by folk singer Kate Rusby and her real-life mum, for their Someone And Their Mum feature.

Presenters/Dawn French and Jennifer Saunders, Producers/Fiona Day and Julia McKenzie for the BBC

Soooo exciting! I think I do need a nap before then (got up at 6 am), so hopefully I'll be wide awake again in time.

Don't forget sweeties, it's this afternoon! There are talks on the Jennifer forum now that Jo won't be on after all as they didn't announce her during their last broadcast.. Cross fingers. :confused:

Re: Joanna on the French & Saunders Radio 2 show

Joanna wasn't on today which really was disappointing, BUT... I did get mentioned! :hyper: They were doing a topic on cheese and listeners were asked to send in questions/stories about cheese and so I did. And Jennifer read out my e-mail! (after she had been struggling to get my name right - I really ought to change it, haha)

So if you want to catch up: it will be up on the BBC website for one week! http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b00x1v54

I'm not sure, I think half away through the show, before Kate Rusby came on. I will have to listen to the show again before I can tell you the exact time - I didn't expect it at all so I didn't time it. :lol:

The show's not available yet though so we'll have to be patient!

Re: Joanna on the French & Saunders Radio 2 show

I recorded it but something went amiss and it stopped recording after an hour.

How good was that, that you got a namecheck Maartje. My knowledge of cheese is lacking - and I do like the mouldy old blue cheeses they don't anyway: Stilton is king! :tongue:

Shame about Joanna, perhaps another time. :yes:

I'm from a country that is famous for its cheeses, so naturally I had to ask the girls what their favourite Dutch cheese was. :lol: Cheese lovers unite!

I think it's great that Jennifer read your email. If you know at what time it was on, let us know, I shall then listen to it. :wave:

Brilliant! Sadly I was doing my exam during the broadcast, otherwise I would have been tempted to email a question as well.

It was a bit confusing because everyone on the Jennifer forum thought the questions had to be about their careers and then they announced their special topic, which turned out to be cheese. :lolol: My e-mail was something I had made up on the spot and it got read out only 5 minutes after I had sent it so I've been lucky.

1:30:47 into the show: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b00x1v54#synopsis

Primula, I know right? :lmao: Nice one, Jen.

First one here to pronounce my name properly will get a cookie! (except for Philippa 'cause that wouldn't be fair really, wouldn't it?) :lol:

Re: Joanna on the French & Saunders Radio 2 show

I think we discussed it before - is Mar-hhhh-a? With a Dutch throaty 'hhhh' in the middle? The t and k are slient? It's a lovely name, please don't change it.

But you certainly fed the comedy, with Jen stumbling and Dawn saying "That's alright ... " or something - and then the Primula commet (which I looked up - is Norwegian!) Pity Joanna wasn't there - she'd have known how to pronounce it! :lol:
