    Just happened to be scanning through the radio stations in the car today and come across this concert by Black Dyke, which I thought some might want to listen to. Apologies if it has been mentioned before. If you enjoy it, let them know at

    Yes, bizarre. But not as bizarre as the fact that this was billed as an Olympic themed concert, yet they didn't broadcast Luke Carver Goss's piece Olympic Gold, the one piece on the programme which was commissioned specifically for the Olympic celebrations. A pity, as it featured Ian MacMillan narrating and I would have liked to have heard it again.
