Greetings from sunny Manchester (but only for the next few days)

Until RS's posting today, I hadn't noticed I only had a 15 minute 
download originally, so I'm grateful for the alert! ;-)

Agreed. I think when they realised their error they corrected the file 
but forgot to alter the title.

Hmm not sure about that. I can't help thinking that if the cricket 
overran on LW, they would have joined the FM feed 15 minutes late, 
rather than present an abridged 15 minute version - after all, they 
wouldn't have known by how long the cricket would overrun. Anyway, I 
can't think why anyone would want a shortened version of the programme!
