I think I'll kill the radio...Not really, of course.
I'm a pretty regular Archers listener, but I'm really starting to lose patience, not neccesarily for the first time. It's often criticised for sensationalism, and there's something in that - but it's nowhere near as annoying as when they try to do comedy, as in tonight's saga of Bert Fry learning to read text messages. Oooh my aching sides.
At 7:07 I said I'd give it two minutes before I retuned to Radio 2. At 7:09 I found myself hearing a track from the new Tori Amos album on Simon Mayo's Album Chart Show and even that was an improvement. Couple this with my increasing frustration at the presentation of the Top 40 (I don't care whether some teenager from the West Country fancies Hanson, I just want to know what records are in the charts and what they sound like thanks) and I think my CD player is going to be busy for the next few weeks.
