    oh how sad…why does it become so long a wait? I listen to BBC3 every day and not very often get a chance to hear full contemp programs on radio

    The membership of CMEW includes a number of members of the BBC National Orchestra of Wales. BBC NOW changed their tour schedule (they’re in PRague the previous week) which meant that although the musicians would be back in time for the concert, many of their instruments wouldn’t be. Unfortunately, things move slowly in large organizations, and once that date was lost, we had to struggle to find another that worked for everyone.

    Should be a great show.
