    Dear Aunty, it's very noble of you to boast that you only broadcast Australian performers on ABC Classic 2. However I think you do a great disservice to all these performers who you broadcast. Sure they get their payments from APRA or whatever it's called, but if you took the trouble to name the performers it would then give the listeners a chance to then buy their recordings, thereby supporting their efforts. Also it seems that you must be using a CD that's put on perpetual replay. The same stuff day after day after day.

    V. Good in that there is minimal talk, but the music is very repetitive. The music playlist seems to repeat some items frequently. e.g. I have heard “Danny Boy” multiple times sometimes within a few days. The limited selection to Australian artists is unfortunate because listeners miss out on great performances by international artists. On the other hand ABC Classic FM provides great content but far too much talk, often about trivia unrelated to the music. Also ABC Classic 2 never plays a complete suite, concerto, or symphony, etc. We only hear one movement in isolation whereas many pieces can only be fully appreciated in the context of the whole. For example, an isolated movement from a Beethoven Symphony (esp. 5,6 , & 9) Is very disappointing >
