Thanks to whoever it was on the alt newsgroup who reminded me about this radio series on the BBC. Hard to get the time straight with the time zone difference anyway.
Anywho, no commentary on these. Not because I don't love hearing Barry's expertise, but because I'm going to do myself a favor, sit down, shut up, crack open my brain and my ears and hopefully learn something from someone who knows more about music than I could hope to learn in several lifetimes.
I'll post the links as they pop up. No guarantees as to how long they will be available so get them while you can.
