  • "And Alberti, as you know..." I think it's his accent that throws me when he drops deep cut knowledge so readily. I expect that in the voice of Stephen Fry: "Oh yes, well, as you know..." He's got just enough rural/West Country in his voice that it sounds rustic enough that... the cognitive dissonance is strong. Or maybe it's just me.

  • Your 'hold music' does for you what EVERYTHING from the so-called composer Einaudi does for me. His stuff starts in the middle, goes on for ages, stops in the middle again for a reprise, re-starts and then finally ends, STILL in the middle. What utter tosh.

  • Brilliant - except - A minor is not the shadow of C major, it's much more a major that has tried, failed and wants to go to bed, it's a disapointed C major.

  • Why are Bill, Steven Fry and the QI Gang, Sandi too actually hilarious and the myriad of so called comedians polluting the airwaves being praised for their ABSOLUTE drivel. When they ARE NOT, boy am I glad I grew up listening to Hancock, the Two Ronnies and BBC RADIO SHOWS. NOW THEY WERE COMIC GEMS, not PC or Woke, whatever that is.

  • Bill's Idea of London fitted in the 1950s to the 1990s, but london is less a frenetic West End and Commercial City now, it has splayed out to the stinklands of urban essex to instead of being fed its essentials from the east it is striving to sliently with cables and data to eat the east side of london, and chill more in the west end though that place is infected with tourists and visitors and chinese students to the universities in london, less bright, more gridlocked in people with no collective aim.

  • Bach was undeniably the greatest composer in history, but Mozart was undeniably the one with the most natural talent. Mozart was unfortunate in the sense that he outshone any teacher he had, and could thus never reach his full potential.
