In a statement congratulating himself on improved audience figures, the Radio 3 controller Alan Davey said this week: ‘I think BBC Radio 3 is important to the kind of society we are. I think having a place where you can take time out from the world, listen to something in depth and get a new perspective is really important. That’s the job that Radio 3 does and I think that’s a job for all time and our listeners seem to think so too judging by the high share and reach this quarter and year.’
That is four thinks in three sentences.
BBC Radio posted a quarterly audience of 2.13 million, its highest in three years.
