Classical chart tries time travel


Just before Christmas I described the UK specialist classical chart as a "shambles". Now a reader has pointed out that today, Jan 4, the UK official classical specialist chart for the week ending Jan 8 is available online, as seen in the screen grab above. This chart is used by the Gramophone, BBC Radio 3 et al.

As he of the "bloody rucksack" said about the classical chart -
"It should prove thoroughly entertaining and enlightening and I'm sure it'll scupper some crusty old preconceptions."
I am just a retired guy living out in the country so I will leave it to the experts to enlighten us.
