This is an increase of over 130,000 listeners compared to the previous three months and the same period the previous year, and we are not at all surprised. John has a huge depth of knowledge and there is no end to his fascinating historical music facts and stories to recount every morning. This knowledge, enthusiasm and his distinctive smooth voice give a quality of class and discernment to the exceptional playlist of Classic FM – a real treat for all classical music lovers.

Congratulations to Classic FM!
