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”.
