Re: Radio 3's 70th Birthday

I have to stick up for BBC Radio 3. Over here in the Netherlands we have 'Radio 4' which has its good moments (mostly concert recordings), but is rather plagued by ikky presenters and the broadcasting of 'the nice bits' of bigger works.
The trouble is, you're damned if you do and damned if you don't: it's either elitist, or it's dumbing down. Listening to BBC Radio 3 widened my perspectives vastly when I was growing up and it still does - with thanks to online streaming and podcasts.
If you aim for high standards there will always be someone taking pot shots. No, Radio 3 ain't perfect, but it remains one of the standards to which others aspire.
