Al's shuffle

Fearless iconoclast Alan Davey, bestriding the Radio 3 schedules like a colossal cultural enabler, has moved Jazz Record Requests from Saturday afternoon to Sunday afternoon. This after 55 years - it started when Radio 3 was still the Third Programme, presented by Humphrey Lyttleton.

The show's place ("a new prime Saturday afternoon slot") has partly been taken by Music Planet, but with J to Z, a second surviving jazz show, still there to follow for those avoiding football results.

There's no explanation of the move from Big Al. Does it save money ?  Improve figures ? There's a minor lip-curl below from the current Record Requests presenter, a mere seven years with the show.
