I was hosting Radio 3’s Breakfast show this weekend – my word! I LOVE radio. It’s so civilized next to TV. Not that TV doesn’t have it’s strong points but Radio rocks.
Being in Broadcasting House early in the morning as the sunrises. Deep in the belly of that building in a soundproofed studio with just you the technician and your producer. And then everything you say for 3 hours zooming around the world framed in a beautiful musical mosaic. What could be better?
And radio people are a hundred times more charming that TV where everyone has to pretend to be an expert in a genre they’ve worked in for 5 minutes. In Radio 3 people have lived and breathed music for decades and they have no insecurities on that score. It was lovely to be working with them.
