Vital Sparks: Radio 3

30/09/2006
What would life be without it? Radio 3 is the cut and polished diamond of radio in Britain. I love it for the breadth of its music programming. I love it for the fact it presents whole works by default, unlike the bargain basement Classic FM. I love it for the regular new drama, even if I don’t always hear it. I love it for the intelligence of its general arts and culture review, Night Waves–head and shoulders above Radio 4’s Front Row. I love it for the verve and invention of its new-writing programme The Verb (you must listen to tonight’s edition online for Andrei Kurkov’s short story). And, as this joyously inventive, hilarous, informative feature from the Between the Ears slot shows, it’s been all this and more for 60 years.
Happy birthday, Radio 3!
