The really rather lovely montage from the end of my final 5live show… (Steve Evans fans, do click).
The final ever DailyBacon podcast:
BBC Salford. Goodbye. (What do you expect, herds of Wildebeest sweeping majestically across the plains?)
.@richardpbacon's last 5 live broadcast: "To the troll who was upset when I replaced Simon Mayo, it's now safe to put the radio back on..."

Here we go. Final ever show. Featuring, amongst others, @piersmorgan, starts now.
*Sorry, should have explained, that's a tweet I posted on my first day at 5live.
From this day forth I'll express opinions where I clearly shouldn't. Revel in my metropolitan bias. And take the piss out of football*
Great @C4Press: Paxo to front C4 election coverage.
No last ever show on 5live, indeed no last ever show of any sort, would be complete without @boydhilton. They're just the facts.
Milk & Honey is being forced to vacate their 23rd Street location; Sasha Petraske is planning to reopen downtown

I hear that neither Ed Miliband nor President Obama plan to disrupt the TV reviews on @richardpbacon's last ever Radio 5 show tomorrow...

Penultimate show, smack downers.
Ps my final show is Wednesday. Not Thu. John bishop. Piers Morgan. Chris Evans among this guests. Help is back today, eagle eared listeners
This is my final ever week on 5live. Because I was sacked* *I wasn't f**king sacked. Say that again and I'll knock you spark out.
Tempted? “@toadmeister: Got a hotel room in Birmingham for nights of Sept 29&30. Spare bed in room. Anyone want to share? £154 for 2 nights
3 piece suite in the lobby of The Beaumont. London's most elegant hotel. Stay there. Or you're a failure.
Just admit it. It's ok. You've changed your mind* and you now think Salmond's a bit of a legend. (*about him. Not independence).
So what's the opposite of metropolitan liberal elite? Rural illiberal ordinary? Is that meant to be a higher calling?
Correspondents loving saying something fundamental has changed. Whatever that change becomes, it'll make almost no difference to your life
...So did one stray opinion poll in the sunday papers change via panic and GBrown, course of the United Kingdom constitutional settlement...

If you're thinking of thanking me for calling it before 10.30 and sending you off for a full night's sleep then please, don't mention it.
Twitter made the overnight results programmes feel like news delivered by steamship.
Well done Scotland. Even though he lost, Alex Salmond is the highest achieving, cleverest, best politician in the (still) United Kingdom.
Fans of zero jeopardy (no's won, unimpeachable fact) & presenters saying "it's been a high turnout" - enjoy the next 8 hrs. I'm going to bed
Do you think the overnight broadcasters know that we all know it's no, but have to pretend they don't know that we all know it's no?
If he is willing to say this, it's done. No jeopardy. Go to bed: "99% certainty that No has won" Peter Kelner, President of YouGov.
after @YouGov re-poll of voters today No54%/Yes46% Peter Kellner tells me he is 99% certain NO have won #indyref

Social media has changed the pace of the game so much. The bbc1 Scotland show hasn't started, and yet to us on twitter, it's OVER. No's won
It will be a 5 or 6 point gap. And it will be no. You can report that. Because it will be right. I'm good at this shit. Deal with it.
Have you bought a #PorkLife ticket yet? If not, DO IT NOW before it's too late…
Johnny Marr was joyous yesterday. No Andrew Marr, admittedly, but within touching distance. He's on yesterday's Daily Bacon podcast
@emmamilnethevet: We're putting the band back together! Help! returns to the @richardpbacon show for the last time ever next Monday.
Truly unique. #Concorde, in old BA livery, flies over Manhattan, with the twin towers of the #WTC visible. Beautiful.

Radio Tooooooo! ELO. Delightful. Thank you. “@BBCRadio2: Look who's here... @richardpbacon
Mansfield, we're within touching distance of the top. We CAN do this. Stop using any non swear words. It's a waste.…
Congrats father-in-law on becoming the new Chair of Barclays. 1st up, can you PLEASE provide access to online statements older than 3 months
Exact: “@Bexy82Bexi: When i did jury service all they cared about was getting home. They said if he was in court then he must b guilty
This 1 unangry woman non jury system is far better. Someone who understands the law thoughtfully & carefully decides rather than 12 f**kwits
How are you getting on with the catchphrase, "smack down!"?
Legs eye view of Hugh Fearnley Wittingatall. And yes, I am wearing excellent shoes
