In a further surrender of autonomy to the BBC’s mass-market networks, the Proms announced this morning that the Jackson Five have been booked for Proms in the Park.
The Jacksons said: ‘We’re looking forward to coming to London, to Hyde Park, and when we get there we’re going to be singing all the greats, and we’re going to have a really big party. We always bring great weather over from California!’
Also on the menu: Russell Watson and an X-Factor winner.
Judgement, balance and brand-awareness have gone phut. Classic FM would never lose the plot like this.
