Radio 4 theme tune

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.

I’ve signed the petition as a protest vote against modernisation – after the last thirty years, I am starting to pine for the 1970s 🙂

Please do not take the current themes tune off. It’s a great reminder of where we live and what we love.

Continuity is as important than choice – for every individual, and for society, The older we get, the more important continuity becomes!
