    Smudge "Jeremy Coney Playing Mantis" Voltman is unavailable for Friday and Saturday. Depending on energy levels, a possibility for two sessions on Sunday night (NZ Time).

    Might sort my Skype out and make a debut myself.

    Feel Smudge, the best of the CW commentators, could do with some stiff competition in the box, along with some stiff tequila shots.

    Howe is quite excellent as a play by play man and overall anchor man. He facilitates discussion between the whole group and doesn't over talk.

    Smudge, when I listened, has a good voice for radio and made some good one liners.

    Good teamwork when I listened in Keep up the good work.
    1) Ross is Boss.
    2) See point 1.

    Leading the charge against nuances being used in posts.

    Yes, Howe is a quality play-by-play commentator, especially as I asked him two minutes before we went on air whether he could do it. Keeps listeners informed, but can also be a touch random and irreverent when necessary. Nice rich baritone too.

    Spark & Howe are my choice of commentators. Not able to identify Smudge yet. Would like to hear Vimes.

    Working on your schedule for Ashes, guys?

    A drunk Kiwi accent takes a bit of getting used to. Give it more of a chance.
