    I don't know why but he just doesn't strike me as being a part of such an iconic band.

    He is an incredible broadcaster. Interested in people, astute, wonderfully articulate and very human.

    He is very empathetic, admits his own shortfalls, he is prepared to discuss some painful periods of his own life, he is a listener and despite being a clergyman, he doesn't come over as didactic.

    I must listen to detail more, sounds like one of my old school reports. However I did know that Richard Osmans brother is a guitarist in Suede and I now know another factoid with the Prof Cox one 👍

    I thought that was a joke at first, but its clearly not.

    Thought it was a play on words, Dare to D:Ream!
