Really enjoying this podcast.
Brilliant broadcasting, light hearted and produced in a way for ordinary people, both young and old, to understand and enjoy the prom culture. The exclusivity, secrets and pomp well uncovered.
Fresh and funny
Really entertaining and informative. Great to see classical music being presented in this way.
