Always a good idea to hear other interpretations of these works. I have my favs, but I can be surprised by a fresh performance, just like anyone else.

The BBC is still stuck in the 20th Century and requires Real Player for (a rather limited) live listening, rather than adopting a better, more cross-platform streaming solution, so downloading the mp3s after they are made available may be the best option for you. OTOH, here's a Real Player alternative that works. Transparent and (completely unlike Real Player) non-intrusive, non-invasive, Real Alternative is a decent software solution to Real Player's stinkiness.
