"Each week, a different presenter will round up their favourite moments on Radio 2; expect interviews with top guests, lively listeners, concerts with world-class artists and fascinating documentaries."

Can we trust the Radio 2 Presenters to "deliver us the best bits" direct to our inbox? Somehow I doubt it.

Time will tell but I'm inclined to agree Smile

I can't imagine what Chris Evans' "best bits" will be. Avoidable, probably!

Eh? Does he still do that? I haven't tuned in for, well, must be 2 years now.

Radio 3 Breakfast is dumbing down down down, with tweets and texts, and things like '...in 10 minutes we'll be playing.... but first here's that lovely last movement of.....'

and the past 2 weeks SOOOOOOOOOOOO much film music

Recently two R3-critical Facebook groups have been formed.

Rather that increase their audience I reckon it will plummet below 2 million next Rajars.

Sorry OT rant where am I?

I'm sure what you say is absolutely true John

Although I love classical music Radio Three is a definite no no for me

I think Classic FM does the whole thing far better despite the adverts Smile

Sadly I have to suffer this at work, and I feel totally vindicated in my criticisms of him. As bad as the trailers suggest. He seems the ultimate annoying berk. Believe me, I would never listen out of choice.

I just mute the adverts, even when I'm driving it's not a problem as I have a mute button built into the steering wheel, so handy.
I enjoy Classic FM, the presenters are excellent, especially Tim Lihoreau & John Suchet who are lovely to listen to in the morning.
