Thanks Foxwood.

Paxman was at one of the Manchester Opera House shows - the first one? - in June 2008.

Thanks from me as well, Foxwood. Could be interesting.
I guess it all started for me sometime around Christmas 1967 and now, goodness me, it's.........2017 and fifty years later.
No one ever listens to me. I might as well be a Leonard Cohen record.

Here's a link to the programme:

I recollect seeing Jeremy Paxman in the audience at the Opera House in Manchester back in 2008 (think it was either the second or third show).

Jeremy Paxman was at the second show.I went to the second show and saw him there.

The radio show doesn't get a very good review in the Radio Times I am afraid - but I will listen anyway!
