Those anniversaries again

Ironic, isn’t it, that it was Radio 2, the old Light Programme, which devoted three hours of its schedule yesterday evening to the Kennedy assassination? The minute by minute account owed a lot to Len Deighton’s Bomber. I started listening, but found it too distressing.

Comments

I listened to two thirds. It was interesting and upsetting in parts but I can't say I was distressed. Getting hard in my old age. I realise it was a very important historical occasion but three hours was just too long. They could have trimmed some of the padding and made it two hours.
It was the real time idea tha prolongued it to three hours, I suppose. TBH, I can't listen to Jeremy Vine for three hours! It was knowing what was coming that made it distressing for me. All that 'just an ordinary day and the crowds all cheering' stuff.
I'm the same with Jeremy Vine, how strange!
