Tonight we go on air for the first time and I'll be presenting with my Leftie friend Rena Valeh. I don't know about Rena, but I'm feeling uncharateristically nervous.
Our guests will be The Spectator's political editor Fraser Nelson and LibDem MP Lynne Featherstone.
At midday I'll be attending Eric Forth's memorial service so we hope to have a brief film report from St Margaret's. Do leave your own recollections of Eric in the Comments. Eric would be most amused that his memorial service is on a famous anniversary. Any idea which one?
Lynne Featherstone is possibly the best known LibDem blogger. We have a brief film report of Francis Maude opening the bloggers stand at Bourenmouth. We'll be asking Lynne about the dangers of blogging for elected politicians and asking Fraser Nelson why he' so far avoided having a blog? Shame on him!
I haven't finally decided what the subject of our half hour debate at 9.30pm will be. Following North Korea's nuclear test yesterday, I'm tempted by the question WHAT SHOULD THE WEST DO ABOUT ROGUE STATES? Unless of course you know better...

On Thursday we'll be joined by Ann Widdecombe and Yasmin Alibhai Brown. Put your tin helmets on....
Among our guests in the next fortnight are Newsnight editor Peter Barron, Shami Chakrabarti, Mark Oaten, David Davis, David Trimble and a whole lot of new faces you may have never seen before!
The 18DoughtyStreet Website launches later today and my programme Vox Politix will have its very own blog. Early each morning I'll be posting something similar to this post to tell you what's on the programme that day and to ask for your input and ideas.
So don't forget to tune in at 8pm for Tim Montgomerie's Doughty News programme and then Vox Politix at 9pm. And keep your fingers crossed for us...
