I'm one of those who resisted Kirsty Young as the Desert Island Discs presenter, but this morning's programme with Grayson Perry was one of the best I've heard. Sadly, it's not availabe as 'listen again' because of rights issues, apparently, but you can see his choices here. What I liked best was the way he allowed the imaginative world he created in childhood a place in his real world, not least in the decisions he made. It made me go straight to the internet to see where I can see his work.

I heard some of the programme - he sounded refreshingly straightforward. (I share your doubts re. the host).

Getting better though, Karen, wouldn't you say?
