Next week's will be my Eurovision extravaganza. It's already been recorded and Mrs Cat was my very special guest.

The week after that will be a "normal" show, if there is such a thing. I was given some cracking CDs for my birthday so I've no doubt they will permeate into the next few shows.

Until next time, good night and good health.
