Found this gem of a web site, and thought a few of you might be interested. The BBC have a radio station dedicated to classical music. There is a weekly radio show dedicated to Stage and Film music ... and there is web site where you can hear replays of interviews and reviews. These are really intelligent and interesting interviews.
Even better, the BBC allows you to listen to the entire edition of its latest programme from the web site. So for those of you who don\'t live in the UK ... don\'t worry.
Here is a list of THIS MONTH\'S interviews, which you can still hear on-line.
Hope you like it !!
