But let us know if there's anything you wanted to know.

Is it still out there? Thanks!

And yes, genre is from the programme level, sorry I didn't explain that. MusicBrainz does have Tags but it's not explicit genre information and isn't that comprehensive yet.

So the Folk and Country genres in Radio 2 are based on Mike Harding and Bob Harris only, not including any of the Country that, say, Mark Lamarr plays (which gets classified as Soul & Reggae)? If so, that seems like a bit of a limitation. (And it gets more complicated still when you get artists like Neil Young or Elvis Costello who have done folk, country, rock, blues/soul.)
