So what's it all about . . .?

OK, everyone hates Mondays. Having worn yourself out struggling to work and through the morning, the afternoon is a time to congratulate yourself on having survived. How better to do so than with a wide variety of lively music, none of which is needs to be taken too seriously? Classical pieces done in electronic style? One hit wonders? 70s Funk and disco? 80's electronic pop? Rock? Rap? Jazz? Swing? In fact anything except Country!

Add to that a few silly stories from the world's media, things happening this week, any any announcements that you really need to know about, and you have ‘Monday PM’

Requests are also welcome as long as they aren't dreary! Just don't take any of it seriously . . .

Final entry

Friday, 1st July 2011

Dear Mike,

It is with great regret that I must advise that I cannot continue to do the Monday afternoon programme on SaintFM.  This is due to events that are beyond my power to control.  I must also apologise for the short notice – the situation only became clear today.

I think it unlikely that things will change in the foreseeable future.  I will contact you if they do.

Thank you for the opportunity to enjoy myself playing at being a radio presenter.  I hope at least some of your audience enjoyed my efforts.

Best wishes,
John Turner
