Which part was “nuf”? BBC?

BBC 3,A long way ahead.

Does it broadcast track information where you are?

It shows track info on my IPlayer LMS set up- it’s always been my favourite classical service.I also like Ylen Klassinen, a Finnish stream. I can’t get it to work on Roon though.They really should have improved the Internet Radio section by now. I find the experience limited.

I like BBC 3 a lot too. As a fan of early music, I listen to Audiophile Baroque ( quite a bit (streams 320 kbps), though they heavily favor instrumental music at the expense of vocal/choral. In the US, the Bach Hour, the streaming archive of the weekly show on WGBH Boston ( is wonderful, though they stream only at 128 kbps.
