CBC Radio Orchestra to live on with new name and mandate

This is good news. The decision to axe the orchestra made no sense - and what is going to happen to it the CBC could have done themselves, and made themselves better off at the same time. Radio 2 is, except between 10 am and 3 pm weekdays, mostly not worth listening to any longer. Exceptions being the Vinyl Cafe, Jurgen (who is now on Sundays) and the occasional concert. There is streaming classical and concerts on demand from the cbc web page, but if you already have a program like streamtuner, why bother?
