Lebrecht lost?

As Paul Donovan pointed out in the Times the BBC are being very secretive about what is happening in the new Radio 3 schedules. Regular readers will know I am a huge fan of Norman Lebrecht, so I am very disturbed to report that Lebrecht Live seems to have disappeared both from the Radio 3 programmes page, and from its regular last Sunday of the month slot, although Norman is still listed as a presenter. Is Lebrecht lost, or will Norm bluster back in another slot? Watch this space.

An inside source within the BBC suggests that a recent edition of Lebrecht Live failed to generate a single listener phone call.

What the blogging world needs is Lebrechtwatch. Who'll take up the challenge?
BTW, he is to speak at the Charleston Festival on his favourite theme: why public support for the arts is a waste of money. Handy for Glyndebourne.

Oh,no, Lebrecht's favourite theme is the death of classical recording.
I have seen an extract from his new book in Prospect and it is usual NL exaggeration.
Fun, though.
