Auntie\'s playing games with the proms listen again

If you go HERE  Proms Chamber Music and scroll over for PCM 2, it tells you that it isn\'t available.  But if you click on the actual title OR go to the date that prom was supposed to play, the prom IS available, and for several weeks to come.

It\'s a good thing that Auntie is on the other side of the pond as a swift trip to the wood shed is in order!

Sign me steaming!
Sarah...aka gentledove!

Prom is short for promenade concert, a term which originally referred to outdoor concerts in London\'s pleasure gardens, where the audience was free to stroll around while the orchestra was playing. In fact this tradition has been revived in parks and stately homes around the UK at promenade concerts such as the Battle Proms. In the context of the BBC Proms Promming now refers to the use of the standing areas inside the hall (the arena and gallery) for which ticket prices are much lower than for the reserved seating.
