1. Frustrated with slow progress in research, I spent 15 minutes of my morning with coffee, bagel, and news. Happened to check Guardian Unlimited (my favourite UK-based mag - linked on the side), I got across this news. It tells about an FM jazz radio in Manchester that has to change its name, because it is "literally turning people off". And it will not only change its name from "Manchester Jazz FM" to "Smooth FM", but it will also "play a broader mix of music". I feel sorry whenever reading this kind of news. When identity has to be given up to whatever market dictates.
