Yesterday I got an email from ClassicFM in England.

"Dear Janet Keating", it said.

"Thank you! What more can I say? Well quite a bit actually.

The latest independent audience research has just come out and at Classic FM we're celebrating some good news. More than 6.3million people across Scotland, Northern Ireland, Wales and England now tune into Classic FM every week - that's 330,000 new listeners in the last three months."

So on this morning's 6 am news I hear "46 policemen were injured in Belfast after rioting."

Interesting. Why were the police rioting?

6.3 million people are listening to this stuff. You have been warned.
