Mark Byford's hair raises eyebrows at concert

While in a queue at the bar of LSO St Luke’s before a Radio 2 concert by Paul Carrack and the BBC Concert Orchestra on Friday, Axegrinder overhead the following conversation:

First woman, pointing at tall, glum-looking, bespectacled chap : “Look at that man’s hair. Do you think it’s a wig? It’s extraordinary!”

Second woman: “I don’t know. Why would you buy a wig like that?”

Axegrinder intervened to explain that the man in question was Mark Byford, deputy director-general of the BBC, and, no, it was not a wig but his very own hair.

“Really?” replied the first woman. “You’d think he could afford a good hairdresser.”

For the concert, Byford sat in the front row upstairs and looked a picture of misery from beginning to end … which may give the BBC Concert Orchestra cause for concern.
