He who prides himself on giving what he thinks the public wants is often
creating a fictitious demand for low standards which he will then satisfy.

Well, I think Aunty is proving this to be so on an almost daily basis and
hence why my R4 listening has taken a severe dip in recent years. :-(((

No-one ever lost out by underestimating the taste of the public - or
