An email from a respected Conservative colleague brings to the attention of the nation a website dedicated to saving the Radio 4 theme tune. When it comes to Radio 4, I’m as reactionary as the rest of the nation. I like the shipping forecast, complained when they tried to ditch “sailing by” and felt robbed when they tried to kill off the afternoon play. The morning medley though? It’s awful. Just awful. It’s too much for 5.30 in the morning. Why don’t they play something different each day? The Today programme could orgnaise a ballot for the playlist.
