Nice article on andante about BBC Radio 3, their classical station. As a fairly serious classical music listener, I'd love to have a radio station that catered to my tastes (Andante Radio was fantastic but it is no longer free), but I realize that such a station would not appeal to most people. The question is, should my tastes be partially funded by other taxpayers, as they are in the UK with BBC? I don't know; perhaps the money would be better spent on music lessons and education for children. I strongly believe it would enrich their lives, and perhaps they'll be hooked enough that they would be motivated to privately fund such a station. In any case, I can listen to BBC Radio 3 over the Internet, so the problem is partially solved for me.
