The ministry of silly talks
BBC Radio 3 presenters seem to earn bonuses for the number of times they use certain buzz words. Currently there is a big incentive on the word live. This is presumably in a futile attempt to differentiate the network from its close relative Classic FM which broadcasts fewer concerts.
Just now we had Radio 3 classical jock Sarah Walker telling us that we had been listening to "Wilhelm Kempff live in concert".
How many times have you heard a pianist dead in concert?
RIP the art of the animateur.
