I'm increasingly spending most of my radio listening time to BBC Radio 3--uncompromisingly traditional and high modernist classical music rounded off with first class world music every night--since I came back online. Radio 4's relentless anti-Blair, anti-Bush, anti-Israel take on just about any news story they can shoehorn it into has got beyond my listening tolerance. The final straw was the very prominent platformm the Today programme gave to the raving fringe Islamist extremist Abu Izzadeen through an interview last week.
Tonight, Radio 3 has been running a wonderful extended feature commemorating the Hungarian uprising of 1956 and its crushing by the Soviet Union in the November of that year. The link takes you to a page which should enable you to listen to the whole 2 hours and 45 minutes of it. Listen in if you can.
