HASN'T THIS BEEN REVIVED MORE TIMES THAN DICK CHENEY'S HUNTING PARTNER?

On Valentine's Day - in what, to us, smells like a test-marketing escapade - Simon Bates revived Our Tune for GCap Radio stations.

Yes, the nation loved Simes. And Simes - well, he loved the attention. And for ages, it seemed they'd last together forever. But then things started to change. Radio One - the home they'd built together - started to feel a little different. A little colder. And one day, Simes came into work, and found the door closed on him. No more Our Tune. No more work.

Since then, he's been popping up all over the place with short-lived Our Tune revivals. Once on Sky TV. Once - we seem to recall - on BBC One. On Talk Radio. Even on Classic FM. But these are always fleeting things. It seems Simes is doomed to never again enjoy that long term, open relationship with the nation's hearts. And friends tell him, it's time to move on, find something new... but somehow, he can't let go. He just has to try one last time to recapture that glow...
