Telegraph dumbs down its defence of BBC Radio 3main
With the regularity of a tax return, the Daily Telegraph has issued its winter assault on the BBC’s classical channel for allegedly dumbing down.
Roger Wright, controller of Radio 3, in a right of reply, set out the case for original music and ideas that Radio 3 presents, as distinct from the limited repertoire and endless repetitions to be heard on its commercial rival, Classical FM.
Roger’s response was published in the Telegraph with, for some reason, a young woman’s picture on top.
So who’s dumbing down, then?
