Gerry Lyseight presented Planet Mambo on Saturday 2nd Sept, when he learned who would be doing the next three weeks:

Sept 9: Martin Freeman, the actor from The Office.

Sept 16: DJ Ritu, who has her own weekly show on BBC Three Counties Radio. Compiler of The Rough Guide to Bhangra, Ritu is one of the UK's leading experts on Indian music and its offshoots, while having a wider interest in world music. David Robey, editor at BBC London, previously worked at Three Counties.

Sept 23: Gerry Lyseight

Sept 30 and after that, we don't know the plans.

I read an interview with him once somewhere; he has an enormous collection of soul music (I think it was) on vinyl.

BBC london are not helping matters by persisting in the delusion that Charlie is still on air - on their website at least.

Well, I’d never heard of Martin Freeman either. I've heard of The Office, but never seen it. He came across as an off-duty engineer who had been coerced into preparing the prog during his dinner break.

I had no preconceptions, but this soon became Yawnsville Central. The choice of records was quite acceptable, but Martin added nothing. I like to feel at least a little enriched when I've listened to a music prog, that the presenter has shared some of his love of the tunes with me (a la Charlie Gillett, of course), but this chap was remote.

Any chance of Phill Jupitus or Danny Baker guesting?
Thanks to Gerry for his highly enjoyable progs and for Mish's playlists.
