Talk radio


During my recent reading I came across the following words of a Buddhist sage and I offer them here in the hope that BBC Radio 3 presenters and those at other stations may meditate on them:
'Do not speak unless you can improve upon the silence.'

It is worth noting that during my recent sojourn in France I found the ratio of banal chatter to music on France Musique even worse than on BBc Radio 3.

Antoine Leboyer posted the following joke here a while back -

Q. How do you know you are listening to France Musique?

A. It is the station that does not play any music.
