A feature of Steve Wright's radio shows are letters from listeners. Almost all feature the phrase "Love the show". It is not clear whether listeners include it to ensure Wright will read the letters or if he adds it himself.

Other Radio 2 presenters have parodied it: Terry Wogan bemoans the lack of such encouragement in his correspondence, occasionally reading listeners' letters which say "Love Steve Wright's show", while listeners of Chris Evans once added "Love the snow" to messages. During a stint sitting in for Wright, Mark Radcliffe jokingly told off listeners who started messages by saying how much they loved the show, supposedly screwing up their letters.

Overnight presenter Alex Lester's listeners now end their correspondence with "Love the shoe". Listeners to Mark Kermode and Simon Mayo's film reviews on BBC Radio 5 Live frequently end their correspondence with "Love the show, Steve".
