Arts report

Unfortunately, last week’s Arts Report had to be cancelled and put back to this week; this week the same has happened again.
Sorry about that.

Village Green for Glastonbury ?

The following interview between Philip Welch and David Landy, on the subject of the application for Village Green status for the Tor Leisure Centre playing fields (due to be discussed by the Town Council on Tuesday evening), was recorded online from Glastonbury FM Radio’s Community Show, re-broadcast this morning.

Hopefully, it will soon appear on the radio station’s “Listen Again” page [http://www.glastonburyfm.co.uk/schedule/listen-again/]

Dumber and dumber …

Just how dumbed-down can you get ?

The Radio Times has just lost my life-long readership (70-odd years). My horror at seeing the cover of this week’s edition is inexpressible. What possible interest can I have in reading about Robert Peston’s sex life ? If I wanted that type of reporting, and that type of journal, I’d go sniffing along the shelves of the women’s weeklies, with their outrageous headlines and lurid cover photos.
The Radio Times hasn’t quite got to that level yet.
But its present state is just another symptom of the rapidly accelerating degeneration of this country and its people: the loss of moral compass; social integrity; intellectual aspirations — and the ability of the editors of its written social organs to cater for the betterment of their readers.
No; everything today is geared towards the instantly sensational; the madly profitable — money above all else. Sell; sell; sell. Whatever happened to the inspirational values of those days of my childhood, when we read The Listener, and The New Statesman & Nation ?

What are we to expect next ?
Kirsty Wark’s struggle with the menopause ?
Alison Graham has a lot to account for.

Brilliant. Well said, that man.

“…When it comes to public funding, the rich get what they want. When it comes to the free market, the rest of us can go hang. It’s communism for the rich, and censorship for the poor.”
