Does The Organist Entertains on Radio 2 do more harm than good?

Ten years ago I stopped listening to the programme as it depressed me. The word 'Entertains' should be 'Constrains'. It doesn't champion the organ world at all, but just a very dusty and cobwebbed corner of it. There are brilliant players in the world using all kinds of modern equipment, playing their socks off with professional expertise. Why, oh why, does the BBC continue to shun this much larger variety of very listenable, very enjoyable music? I have nothing against Nigel Ogden. He's a fine player, and used to include all kinds of music. He's obviously been got at by the bosses of light entertainment, and should nail the results of this petition on their door. Come on BBC give us a break.
