All well on the radio
THE article 'Time for a retune at Radio 3' (Sunday Morning Post, January 29) started with the premise that Radio 3 has received a barrage of criticism for being too expat and too BBC, and then went on to prove . . . er, well . . . the opposite.
Anthony Lawrence was quoted as saying it does a very good job, Tim Hamlett says it does miracles with a modest budget and Dave Raven highlights the impossibility of trying to please all tastes in a mixed community. As for the listeners . . . the 30-odd people of mixed ages and nationalities who turned up for the panel on January 25, were unanimous in their support for Radio 3 - the only criticisms being connected with poor reception and one or two quirks of individual presenters.
