For our Media Review this month, our team have a think about Thoughts! The Thoughts For The Day that still exist on various radio stations, to be precise. Some are known as Pause For Thought, or God Slots, or (as Darren unkindly says) ‘Let Me Tell You About My Friend Jimmy but Really I Mean Jesus’.
We feature a selection of short extracts taken from recent weeks – output from BBC Radio 2 (Kate Bottley), Radio 4 (Mona Siddiqui) and BBC Radio Scotland (Anna Magnusson). You can listen to the full Thoughts if you follow these links:
