Radio 3 Sees The Light

Next week, starting Monday Feb 15, BBC's much maligned jazz coverage takes an upturn.
Each weekday they are broadcasting at noon (repeated 22:00hrs), in their 'Composer of the Week' series, a 60 minute program entitled "Bebop".
Now I'm not quite sure how Bebop comes under the heading of COTW but that's the BEEB for you and I for one don't intend to put my head into the mouth of a gift horse.
To cut to the quick it is 5 half-hour programmes devoted to the development of the music we love.
Lance.
