First impressions:

  • I am really pissed that they cut the half-hour news. Malloch informed us that the news at 6 will be only 3 minutes from now on, but the full version is still available on Radio One. The listener will have a choice, she said, and she hopes that we will choose to listen to music instead, since music can tell us about reality in a way the news cannot (I swear to God she really did say that, I did not make it up).
  • I will eat my hat if this stuff is really jazz. Okay, maybe 10-20% of it is jazz. The rest is elevator music.
