Ronnie Scott Celebration on Radio 4

Russell has pointed out to me that on Thursday 3rd December Radio 4 is putting out 'The House that Jazz Built' (11.30.a.m.). A half hour programme celebrating 50 years of Ronnie Scott's.
Mmm - 50 years in half an hour? Perhaps we'll hear Stan Tracey's "Under Condensed Milkwood." Still, when it comes to jazz and the media, 'Beggars can't be choosers" is the expression that springs to mind.
Our mentors, 'Telegraph.com', just today bemoaned the fact that the London Jazz Festival, the most successful ever, with 250 events in ten days didn't receive any TV coverage. We could equally argue the same re the Sage Gateshead, Scarborough and other jazz festivals.
Perhaps ITV and BBC realise their product is so bad that, as jazz enthusiasts move on a higher plane than day to day TV caters for, they don't bother trying to woo us anymore.
Lance.
