It\'s not as bad as I\'d feared, Roy, but I\'m with you, not a DID fan much.

I didn\'t like to complain as I\'m not that musical myself, but there does seem to be a bit too much. I had hopes for the Cambridge Buskers but, while amusing, it is a bit highbrow for me. I have never been a fan of DID and don\'t listen to the repeats, but I do feel that it does have a place here, as it also covers the history of the \'victim\' as well as their tastes.

My complaint is an echo of a complaint I read about at the old R7 boards, too many repeats. There are shows being repeated which were last heard only a few months ago. I don\'t know...maybe it\'s a good thing. If the Beeb does decide to cut all of us outside the UK off, we won\'t miss it so much. It might just be a matter of hoping people in the UK will share the content somehow online.

My complaint was never about the repeats; after all 7 (and now 4X) was set up to exploit the BBC radio archive. What  bugs me is that some programmes are repeated over and over again ad nauseum  - to the point that shows that I once enjoyed now leave me cold -  whilst other programmes hardly ever get an airing.  I know that in the main this is due to problems with broadcast rights, but it still leaves me a little frustrated.
I\'m NOT paranoid......thats just what THEY want you to think!!!
