Radio Four has record ratings - and JAM's a "big hitter"

While audiences for TV news and newspaper sales slowly fall, it's radio
that seems to be picking up, in Britain and in other countries.

This Guardian piece has the details and note Just a Minute is described
as being among the network's most important shows...

This piece also mentions JAM prominently and suggests it's been
"reinvented" by the current controller, Mark Damazer...

I guess I missed the reinvention. Anyone else feel the show has changed
much in the past two or three years?

If, anyone ever ┬┤reinvented┬┤ JAM that surely must be Paul Merton.

nice to know the show is still a ratings winner. i think most of the changes came about when Paul Merton became a panelist.

but, if Nicholas Parsons is still chairman, then I can't see how much the show has changed. He still flirts with woman young enough to be his granddaughter, still can't find a coherent sentence with two hands and a flashlight, and still sounds like he uses peanut butter as a denture adhesive and gargles with razor blades and hydrochloric acid.
