The Week In Radio: When sex and the city make for a heady mix

One of the pet complaints of licence- payers, right up there with Jonathan Ross's salary and people who start their sentences with "so", is the idea that the BBC is too London-centric. 5 Live is relocating wholesale to Salford in an attempt to convince people that the BBC genuinely cares about the non-Oyster card classes.

In the final days, apparently, there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. Well, we're nowhere near the final days of this election campaign, and we've already had the Prime Minister weeping on TV and Alastair Campbell being alarmingly upset.
