Vanishing radio mystery
Wednesday morning Radio Three was swamped by an Italian channel. Crap pop music, highly excited presenters, lots of ads, and so on.
I was chuffed to find i could understand enough, if not to follow exactly what was said, at least to declare what the subject was. This is from So-and-so’s new album; traffic hold-ups around Naples; an ad for sewing machines. It was invigorating, language practise at 7.30am. Though i did miss my serene but stimulating wake-up with Rob Cowan, Vivaldi and Handel.
Funny thing is, Thursday that station had completely disappeared and Radio Three was as clear as ever.
