LITTLE TAKEOVER?: Last night's Newsnight mailout suggests Alan 'Uncle of Stuart' Little is making a bid to take over Jeremy Vine's position as BBC News' Head of Music:
And who is Ayn Rand, and why does her work fascinate restless Tories? We'll have to play some songs from Rush to help explain, but it will be worth waiting for.
Uh? Now, I think I'm right in saying that this item was dropped because of developments in Newmarket (or it might have been that we swapped to see if it was a Max Bygraves-era Family Fortunes on Challenge before it came on) but we have to ask: is there any instance in which playing the music of Rush at a television audience is justified? Jeremy remains the boss.
