The BBC is now streaming some very nice oud and guitar music on BBC Radio 3 World Routes. (Thanks, Canahan!)
Update: Very nice station; I enjoyed the classical bit afterwards too. I remember listening to BBC News on a little longwave radio in Jordan every day, but it was never like that. We don’t have a strictly classical station here in Chicago, but we do have world-class jazz–although much less of it since Dick Buckley retired and took his record collection with him.
The Iraqi program–BBC proms (?) Ilham Al Mafai and friends on oud and guitar–which comes up if you do a site search for Iraq, is still available here.
