Tune in to Radio 4’s ‘Today’ programme at 8.35am this morning, Tuesday 29 January, when I’ll be taking part in a short discussion about coughing in concerts.
We’ll be discussing the research of Professor Andreas Wagener, who believes that coughing in concerts is both ‘excessive’ and ‘non-random’. Apparently people cough more in concerts than they do in everyday life. Is it a form of joining in? Is it a form of protest? Do performers mind it? Tune in to the Today programme to hear more.
If you missed the original item you can listen to it here. Scroll down to the time of 0844 and you’ll find a four-minute sound clip. You can also listen to it on the BBC News page about arts and entertainment.
Or you can download the podcast.
