what makes the BBC music special was because it was library music which wasn’t available to the public.
There was a department set up called the foreign recordings unit at the BBC which was run by a chap called David Allan who was a radio producer . The problem was the material recorded here was governed by the prs system where fees had to be paid every time it was played which would cost alot of money just to be used on trade test transmissions . So David would collect music from session musicians records out of the country so to avoid prs fees. David was patron of our test card circle group until he sadly passed away 5 years ago . Our current patron is a chap called john ross Barnard who took over at foreign recordings after David retired.
