This leads me to the discussion question(s) of the week.
a) notwithstanding the general cultural vandalism of the now discredited Birtist regime, was it right to disband the Radiophonic Workshop around the time that they did? Having got the 2 CD retrospective I do rather feel that on some level its time had passed.
b) if not, what would they be doing now?
c) what would be the equivalent thing that the BBC should be setting up now that would be equivalently cutting-edge and have as big a cultural impact as the Radiophonic Workshop did in its time?
