yes, the prospect of an excess of rogers is quite duanting, it's r4 'feedback''s roger bolthead discussing roger wrong's kerazy new ideas to attract more pre schoolers to r3.
i've got my favourite toddler outfit on, complete with padded straightjacket, tutu & tiara, and a sack of salt - in preparation for being talked down to. if you listen, i suggest you do the same serial apologist, otherwise the big roger's will annoy you, really intensely.
I've added my two penn'orth to Wright's blog. I'm sorry if that's the kiss of death to the jazz cause but I believe passionately in a pluralist Radio 3.
wot no jazz! well stuff Feedback and R4
thought Squealer was under some pressure there, he used the word "perspective" like a big stick
well Jazzboes we are deserted and not cared about so what's new?
"Society is indeed a contract. It is a partnership in all science; a partnership in all art; a partnership in every virtue, and in all perfection. As the ends of such a partnership cannot be obtained in many generations, it becomes a partnership not only between those who are living, but between those who are living, those who are dead, and those who are to be born.”
What a disappointment! Mention was made of Saturday afternoon, but then it wasn't put to Roger Wright, and no listeners' views were aired. Boo!
I was extremely unimpressed in any case with Wright's attitude.
Wright just selected 1 Breakfast from 1991 for comparison with 1 recent edition. Boy, he must be a busy man - obviously no time to make proper comparisons was effectively admitted. Then he cited one professional trumpet player talking about Flor Peeters out of all the incoming trivia as representative of phone-in input. Unchallenged, naturally...
I, too contributed my two farthings worth.
Tried to put a positive spin on the topic...

'I feel your pain!']
