More F1-related dopiness here. The author writes one of the very best classical-music blogs out there-- in his lucid intervals between spells of fellating Hugo Chavez and bemoaning the training of armed guards - from Australian Tim Blair's blog.

Thank you so much for the post about Elizabeth Maconchy -- of whom I'd never heard of before. Having now listened to the first programme about her on BBC Radio 3, and read the pliable words, I went to Regis Records and ordered via their online service. Pliable readers may be interested to know their retail price is 12 pounds sterling for the 3cds. Cheers!
