Radio 3

I have been listening to BBC Radio 3 a lot recently. It is the BBC station dedicated to classical music and, to a much lesser extent, jazz. They have a great selection, not limited to the few mainstay symphonies and overtures that make up many classical repetoires. They sometimes dredge up obscure recordings from the twenties.

The DJs on Radio 3 all appear to have an extensive knowledge of classical music, extending not merely to the composers but also to famous musicians. Often, it is rather difficult for a novice to pick up on all the references they make. It makes me want to learn more about classical music.
