ABC Classic FM is a radio network available on more than one hundred frequencies in Australia. Their slogan is “Life is beautiful” and they are transmitting this message to the people every day. ABC Classic FM became valuable source for classical music addicts. So if you want to listen to classic FM online, this radio station will be a real gift for you. They broadcast live concerts and studio recordings for jazz and classical music. But they also have music analysis programs available for listening.
Well at least the broadcast quality is adequate and there is classical to listen too, but the idea that you don't publish IN ADVANCE what is going to be played is really inconvenient. It can only reduce the number of people listening. I suppose some bright spark thought it would increase the audience since they HAD to just listen and hope for the best. Wrong!
I used to be an ardent listener of Classic FM in the days when it was almost entirely music and you got ADVANCE notice of the programme. Now there is less music and far too much talk, worse when two presenters are on at the same time, chatting with each other, trying to be funny: two salaries and less music! Now on line there is the utterly bizarre scheme of telling what HAS BEEN played, not what IS TO BE played. Now I switch on at random to hear what is being played, which is hit and miss and not at all satisfactory. Please less talk, more music, and for God;s sake tell us in advance what is to be played as of yore!!
I listen your radio in hospital now, it's evening, you play nice music. I will be your fan...
I have been an ardent follow of ABC Classic FM since its inception and since the advent of streaming I carry your station around the world with me; this note comes from South Africa.
I also bring to your attention a wonderful station in South Africa, it is similar to 2MBSFM, and is called Fine Music Radio, broadcast and streamed from Cape Town, you would find it of interest I think.
In anticipation and with kind regards from a happy listener,
Peter Vanderspuy, South Africa.
