I know the Beeb is trying to attract a younger audience but that’s as unlikely as teens shopping in M&S.
Meanwhile they’re probably losing their core listeners, like me, by using presenters like The Media Show’s. I switched off 30 seconds in when he referred to Twenny Twenny and gabbled so fast, with so many consonants missing, that I had no idea what he was saying.
Back to Radio 3, where the diction is still correct and there’s beautiful music too.

I'm a Radio 4 fan. I think my daughter listens to it sometimes but, as you say, the Beeb's chances of attracting the young is minimal. I do get annoyed with the patronising male presenter of Gardener's Question Time but he must have been on holiday this week because a woman took his place and she was much better.
