Re: Lousy TV sound

The criticisms of Classic FM mentioned above were valid 20 years ago and persuaded me to go back to the Today program on Radio 4 on my 50 minute commute to work. However before I switched to the Today program CFM did introduce me to new music.

CFM's best program was the recording of the bird song that was used to test out the coverage of the CFM transmitters prior to getting a license to broadcast.

We had a visitor from Switzerland at the birdsong time and he also saw the rows of cars lined up facing the sea listening to the CFM tests. He is convinced that is the UK's unique leisure pastime.
