Thread Name: Proper Music?
Subject: RE: Proper Music?
I used to think I must be a bit of a philistine for not liking a lot of classical stuff, then I heard Tom Stoppard, a writer I admire enormously and consider extremely cultured and highbrow, interviewed on the radio, "I've never been to an opera in my life," he said "and I wouldn't go to a ballet even if the tickets were free." I stopped feeling guilty after that.

Yes the BBC should be ashamed of itself.
