  1. I suspect that if you erected a cloth screen this weekend and spoke from behind it so that those listening could not hear you that the sense of something new and anticipation/what will happen next would actually increase what is taken in by the listeners rather than reduce it to 20%.

    If you adopted this style for a year, the 20% rule could be understood – as with most such statistics and damned lies, the variables are so large as varied

  2. Not being the most physically adept of people, there are times when my surplice probably functions as a large cloth screen!

    I take your point, I think we concentrate much more when listening to radio than when watching television
