Proms 2009: Pre-launch jitters

For those who are otherwise unaware, tomorrow is the launch day for this year’s BBC Proms season. Some of us have had it marked out on our calendars for quite a while. It’s a terribly exciting day.

Quite apart from the various appearances it’s head honcho Roger Wright will make (he’ll be on Radio 4’s Front Row with John Wilson on Wednesday 8 April), it’s also the day when the brochure is finally made available. I usually make a special visit to this WHSmith to purchase it.This year, I’ve had an opportunity to interview the big man about the forthcoming season. We met up last week during our lunch-hours.

I have it on good authority the result of that interview will be made public tomorrow, but in the meantime take a look at what might be described as a trail for the main feature.

And in case you’re in any doubt, I’m being sarcastic when I refer to the interview as “the main feature”.

One thought to “Proms 2009: Pre-launch jitters”

  1. We’re not going to have to wait until 7.15 tonight for the announcements, are we? Surely? Please?

    Are you being sarcastic when you say you’re being sarcastic? 😉
