Start the Week is back

By October 7, 2009October 14th, 2009No Comments

It’s October which means that the best radio programme in the world my favourite radio programme is back — Start the Week with Andrew Marr. The walk to work is made that much more intellectual when STW is on the iPod.

This week there was a lovely moment when Peter Maxwell-Davies (Master of the Queen’s Music), in conversation with thriller novelists P.D. James (Phyllis, I now learn) and Stella Rimington, compared the construction of a good plot to the composition of music — the organisation of it, the mathematics of it. I so enjoy hearing people from different disciplines find common ground — and uncommon ground. Great radio.
