Elaine Paige on Sunday is a showtunes radio programme on BBC Radio 2 hosted by the actress Elaine Paige. Launched in September 2004, the show is produced by Malcom Prince and regularly attracts 3 million listeners.


There is normally a guest on Paige's show. The most famous of these have been Johnny Mathis, Liza Minelli and Bill Kenwright. Other guests have included Idina Menzel, Lee Mead and Benny Andersson and Bjorn Ulvaeus.


Although it attracts many listeners every week the show has received bad reviews. In an particularly unfavourable review, the show was described by Elisabeth Mahoney of The Guardian as "a chilly, alienating listening experience" and a "rare wrong move" on the part of Radio 2. Lisa Martland of The Stage agreed that "it is by far the music that brings me back to the programme ... and not her lightweight presenting style".
