Until recently there used to be three shows in the morning that would deliver pretty much continuous classical music.
Now there is ‘Essential Classics’, which sounds to me like a compilation CD from Morrisons. There are now ‘daily brainteasers’ and some guests who are asked to talk about their love of music.
If the controller of Radio3, a chap called Roger Wright, would try any harder to make this sound like ‘Classic FM’, all he would need to do now is introduce commercials.
All I want from his station is as much good music as possible, the works always in their entirety, I playlist so I can see what’s playing and as little talking as possible. You think he would get that.
