If BBC Radio 3 is broke why not fix it?
RAJAR audience figures released today show that in the all important Q3 2013 - the period that includes the Proms - BBC Radio 3 lost a further 5.8% of its audience year on year, while total listening hours crashed by 8.9% due to an additional fall in average hours per listener. Despite the official BBC press release once again spinning the audience figures in an imaginative way the message is clear: while Radio 3 fiddled and classical music burned, Radio 2 added a million listeners and grabbed the headlines - see above. Now come on BBC Trust; if Radio 3 is broke why not fix it?
