Country Life Every Week - - Opinion -

The three most ter­ri­fy­ing words in the English lan­guage are Money Box Live, the per­sonal-fi­nance pro­gramme: for 30 min­utes on a Wed­nes­day, the dog and I ex­change em­bar­rassed looks about the state of my pen­sion. Ra­dio 4 can be bossy, bless it, but then, I think, given the use­less­ness of ru­ral broad­band, it per­forms a use­ful com­mu­nity in­for­ma­tion ser­vice. More sooth­ing is Gar­dener’s Ques­tion Time (Fri­days, 3pm). The vet ar­rives on the yard. ‘Can you wait a minute?’ she asks, all ears for the head­lines on PM with the wry Ed­die Mair, re­cently voted the most at­trac­tive male voice on ra­dio.
