Listen here

The latest quarterly radio listening figures are out. Radio 5Live has lost 680,000 listeners year on year, down to 5.61m, after the schedule change in October, which saw the departure of Victoria Derbyshire, Shelagh Fogarty and Richard Bacon from weekday schedules. Total hours of listening are down by nearly 19%.

Radio 1 lost 540,000 year on year, down to 10.43m. Radio 4 was down 450,000 to 10.76m. Radio 4 Extra is up to 1.72m, with listeners staying longer - the 2m barrier ought to go in 2016.

6Music has already done it - up to 2.08m; Radio 3 nudges back through the barrier, to 2.03m. Classic FM has 5.6m.

Radio Wales and Radio Cymru slide down, Radio Scotland and Radio Ulster nudge up - all year-on-year. In the roller coaster world of BBC Local Radio, things are up for Bristol, Oxford, Hereford and Worcester, and down for Wiltshire, Coventry and Warwickshire, Kent and Nottingham.
