Even in this tiny corner of the BBC's empire, research will be carried out and all schedule innovations will be evaluated, maintained, modified or scrapped after 6 months or so (including live evenng concerts).
Would it not be far, far, far, far more sensible to address your concerns to Radio 3 by email or Facebook rather than moan pointlessly and ineffectively amongst yourselves?
It's daft to hide your views in a chat room which the BBC may well see (if at all) as populated by people who get enraged if nurse brings them a bourbon biscuit, not a custard cream.
Not really. I expect words spread easily these days via facebook or twit or whatever that there is another programme you can phone in. It doesn’t mean all those people are actually listening to the programme before and after my true story. No, I can’t prove it. It’s just a guess.there never seems to be a day when they get no replies to their invitation for answers to quiz questions.
does this surprise anyone?
I heard that. I wasn’t sure whether I should be glad or sad.James Jolly apologising for doing something he hates only having time to play one movement of VW Symphony No 3 .
Sounds familiar…Would it not be far, far, far, far more sensible to address your concerns to Radio 3 by email or Facebook rather than moan pointlessly and ineffectively amongst yourselves?

This was to counter the Controller's implication (though, to be fair, he didn't quite say as much) that the great majority of listeners writing to Radio 3 were praising the new programmes, though there were, he said, 'some negative'.
That is what I meant by flak. You will note also the Radio Times's 'many' as against 'one'.
A lot of people who post here have nothing to say about the morning programmes because they don't (or possibly, no longer) listen to them.
The potential audience that they are aimed at is far, far larger than the long-standing Radio 3 audience which is complaining. That doesn't make it right to target that larger audience and marginalise the existing classical music audience.
