Harold Hare

I still remember the excitement when my Harold Hare comic dropped through the letterbox on a Wednesday evening - just before choir practice.

I still have a copy of the annual.

Felt the same excitement today when I discovered on the doormat the latest issue of the SNCF magazine.

Full of things French. The back cover is a photo of Calais in 1938 where the locomotive is making its way, backwards, from the shed to the maritime station.

Radio 3:

Latest listening figures from RAJAR.

"Radio 3 has a weekly audience of 2.10 million listeners – compared to 2.05m last quarter and 2.22m last year. The network’s share is 1.3%, up from 1.1% last quarter and 1.2% last year. 

..... while Radio 1Xtra attracts 1.02 million listeners – up 25% on last year and the first time the station has tipped one million. Including all listeners aged 10+, 1Xtra’s audience rises to 1.10 million."

Unbelievably, that load of old rubbish, Classic FM, reports these stats.

This radio station broadcast to a total survey area of 51,951,000 adults (aged 15+).
It was listened to by 5,444,000 people (10.%) each week.
Each listener tuned in for 6.9 hours per week - a total of 37,457,000.
In its area, it had a 3.5% market share."
Anyway, spent the morning listening to Radio 3.
Last night's dinner:

Lemon sole, and broccoli in tomato/basil sauce.
