Early Music Radio
I think EMR a non-stop stream of all sorts, without announcements, but worth a listen.
Here's Musicweb's write-up.
Thank you. This is great!!! Three cheers for Steve Foulds.
This is what he says on his Rough Guide:

Whilst I love the concept of back-to-back music, I believe the listener should be informed as well as entertained. Therefore, rather than having to sit in front of a microphone 24/7, announcements, introductions, station signature tunes etc can all be pre-recorded by me and then subsequently ‘slotted’ into the play list using a pre-defined format – cunning eh!
It will also allow me flexibility for ‘special’ programmes featuring specific artists/genre/time periods to be easily scheduled into the standard play list – even more cunning eh, eh! "
I shall give it a whirl after I have caught up with a few programmes.
Umm - isn't that what some people disliked about the Mozart fest concept - that it could do away with live presenters, & just be a pre-recorded stream of music and announcements?

As a 'one-man band' it will probably have to have something like the TTN arrangement, and will allow for a bit of 'educational' content to be included. At the moment it no doubt suits those who want minimal - or, in this case, no - information between works.
