    Oh my Precious Mark, my web access is through a 2nd hand Nokia 7610 cell phone, so unfortunately I do not have that ‘sound facilities’ stuff they’re talking about !!! With my love… Yours forever, Lubna…

    Sorry Lubna – we should get you some better kit shouldn’t we ?
    I’ll ask Steve to post on here to give us some more details…

    Hi. Just to clarify what this is all about – we want to invite the regular WHYSers to join the panel *before* the next survey is published. We already think of you guys as VIP listeners so your views are especially valuable to us – hence the special invitation and early warning.

    So get signed up if you can and keep an eye on your inbox for the next survey which will be published in a few hours time.

    It’s worth saying that some of the surveys, including the next one, don’t require audio playback. So it might work from your mobile Lubna although that’s not officially supported *yet*.

    Hi Steve Martin,

    I signed up for the survey. I can take a survey just on WHYS (friendly) show as I sporadically listen to other programmes. My use of the BBC is largely centred on the WHYS blog, BBC news website and on BBC World TV which I watch most of the time on weekends during which it broadcasts its best programs like Newsnight, Imagination and other documentaries.

    Wow guys, THANKS A MILLION to both of you Precious Mark and Precious Steve !!! So, should I sign up now ?! Yes or no ?! With my love… Yours forever, Lubna…

    Does this mean we don’t have to wait in the drink line as “VIP” listeners and get instant service from the bartender?

    Steve, please, no irresponsible behaviour with alcohol, you’re not living up to your standards here!

    @ Steve Martin: Sorry, but I’m already busy enough with moderating and taking care of family, job, etc. I’ll have to miss out on this one.

    Was already signed up before the email. In fact, I signed up not too long after the BBC WS changed its idents last year…

    I should have noticed that link.

    I have already taken part in the survey through an email which contains a link to the survey site. I have put WHYS show and Ros Atkins at the top of BBC programs and presenters I am familiar with.
    I think WHYS should contain this link to the survey in Friday’s email for more participation: http://bbc.mediascoreinc.com/survey/login.asp?us=70957.47
