Heard in the clouds


No apologies for another post about the UK radio station of the year. A few months ago Petroc Trelawny, whose day job is being BBC Radio 3's star presenter, was complaining on the Telegraph website about what his headline described as 'the misery of British Airways'. The hapless BBC presenter spent four hours on a British Airways flight from Istanbul to London, and was moved to share with Telegraph readers just 'how long and unpleasant those hours seemed'.

Many of us know just how long and unpleasant those hours must have seemed. Because, as the British Airways website proudly proclaims, their inflight entertainment 'features radio channels hosted exclusively for British Airways by ... Petroc Trelawny'.

And it's no better on a cruise ship.

Petroc Trelawny has the second most ludicrous name of any BBC Radio 3 presenter. First prize, of course, goes to the fragrant Sara Mohr-Pietsch.
