I find this a very odd comment, mercia, I have to say. The esteem or otherwise in which an individual is held here exercises absolutely no influence on my listening. This forum has only added to my listening, I think, with the helpful signposts to programmes I might otherwise have missed, and ditto recorded performances on CD (as oft expressed here, it can be an expensive place to browse!!). The only thing that puts me off listening to R3 is the inanity of some of the content of the station itself at certain times of day, weekday mornings above all.
