I have listened faithfully to Radio 4 for years now, and simply can not handle it anymore. The constant repetition of news - most of it Westminster-based - is enough to drive even the most dedicated political animal crazy. 'The Archers', meanwhile, is utter tosh. The radio dramas on Sunday evening are, for the most part, depressing. Even shows that could be good, like the 'Moral Maze', uses the most ridiculous commentators. I mean, what expertise does Michael Portillo bring to the philosophical round table? And if I hear Matthew Paris' smug voice again, I will drive my car into a tree.
But I have started tuning into Radio 3 since last week, and man-oh-man, life is better now. I don't know how I forgot that art is actually much more edifying than talk, talk, talk.
I feel better for that. Thanks for tuning in.
