Go on then, I’ll admit it, the football was a distraction

COMMENT: Bandstand event is a victim of its own success

Have your say

Iwas very surprised to get a complaint from my listeners for not talking enough during the England v France football match on Monday.

I was always told it should be the other way around!

But as the television was on in the studio, I admit I might not have appeared on my afternoon radio show as much as usual.

Maybe an extra song or two was played as I jumped from my seat when England scored.

I’m sure I’m not the only person guilty of shirking that day.

Then again, I take it as a compliment that our afternoon banter is so enjoyed.

After making a few mistakes, I decided to turn the TV off at half-time, and normal service was resumed.
