I know this is stating the obvious but...
For the last 4 nights I've woken about 2:30-3:00 in the morning to find my radio happily playing Classic FM. Falling alseep with the radio still on is something Dad does .. .EEK!!!
Actually the idea of me listening to Classic FM is a bit of a surprise and even more so that my MP3 now only has classical on it!
When I bought said MP3 I had expected to load it with old favourite CDs. However I've not done that and it is filling up fast with Classical stuff.
I got into classical by chance. Years ago I used to listen to Fi Glover at 10pm on Radio 5, I tolerated her replacement but when Stephen Nolan came on that was it. I just can't stand Nolan and his style and I moved lock stock and car radio to Radio 4.
One evening I found that the Radio 4 programme was getting too heavy and pulled my digital radio out of the drawyer and tuned it to Classic FM (when I bought said radio I couldn't get a BBC station). Now it just so happens that at 10pm Margherita Taylor is on playing "Smooth Classics", it was lovely and relaxing.
Later I decided that it was rather daft that I had seen a particular episode of QI on Dave about 318 times and I turned the radio on and found Jane Jones full works concerts. I think my radio is on more than my telly now week nights!
My car radio is now tuned to Classic FM and I listened to a bit of Radio 3 one night!!!!
I've even voted on the Classic FM Hall of fame - pretentious or what! I went for the Bruch Violin piano concerto, Allegri - Misere and the Schumann Piano concerto.
And even more alarming? I'm going to a classical music concert in March!!!
