Hi Frank:

I agree Steve did a good job crunching to MP3. The only reason to grab FLAC is that it is a lossless 
format (the L is for lossless, I think), and the FLAC frontend blows it back up to WAV, so you could 
burn a CD at full CD quality. Over earbuds on the iPod, I found the MP3 more than acceptable and the 
stereophony was very clear to me.

I want to say again THANKS to Steve Abrams for making this audio available. The BBC has still not 
fixed the RealAudio stream on their website.
