Does anyone else have trouble understanding Clive Robertson's cynical kind of humour of a morning? I just wish he'd play music and say as little as possible. protests Lee.

Uncle has difficulty understanding why an FM channel devoted to classical music feels it necessary to mix it with large slabs of talk. Whatever you think of Robertson's line in banter, if it's music you want, Classic FM's breakfast program is unlistenable.

Then one third of the 9-12 slot is given over to more chat between Margaret Throsby and her guest of the day.

My advice to Lee is to search out your community classical music station, if you're lucky enough to have one. And then ask Richard Alston to put your 8 cents a day towards it.
