A much-loved entertainer for those of us inclined to a spot of R4 comedy.
Loose Ends was good, especially when it was on Saturday mornings, not the evening.
 
One of my favourite ever radio moments was on Loose Ends - he was up in the north east and had Kathryn Tickell (northumbrian pipes player) on as a guest. He wanted to have a go at playing them, but first had to strap them round his waist. Because of his somewhat larger size, the belt pinged open and he dropped the pipes. The noise they made when they hit the floor was pure comedy. I was driving down the M6 at the time and nearly crashed.
