    The Today Programme is always in the news. The Telegraph runs with the Voice of the Listener and Viewer's gong for Today (and Radio 4 in general). In the same paper Tim Walker wonders why Today didn't send Naughtie or Humphrys to the Tory conference in Manchester.

    The Times (and everybody else) carries coverage of Ben Bradshaw's angry Twitter attack on Evan Davis' Osborne interview on... Today.

    Guardian radio reviewers are now 'curating' the stuff - providing links to iPlayer so you can listen to the programmes they review. It had to happen. And, of course, it's almost all Radio 4.

    Jane Thynne in The Independent says that the assembly of noblemen and women on Monday's Start The Week "felt a lot like gatecrashing the House of Lords' tea room".

    On her blog, Joanna Leahy, an 'Irish nomad in Norway', was surprised by a call from The World Tonight PM. She was interviewed about Norway's status (according to a UN report) as best place to live on the planet.

    Back in The Telegraph, Jod Mitchell reviews four Radio 4 documentaries, including last week's Black men can't swim and of presenter Matt Blaize he says: "he did what a documentary-maker should do - investigate a single question and suggest a straightforward answer."

    And, to finish, Twitter - as usual - is full of clever thoughts about Radio 4 programmes. Don't take my word for it - search for yourself.
