TV in the radio?

Where has TV ON THE RADIO gone from the podcasts? It hasn’t been included for the past 2 weeks. Please bring it back!

Measured/Fair

Really enjoy this prog. Sean is both measured and fair and tries to accommodate all sides as a good interviewer should. A great sense of humour. Love the movies and booze slot!
Hope he will never call it a day.

One very happy listener.
