The beat must stop!

On today’s show we heard about new rules governing the way music is written and performed in the Russian Republic of Chechnya.

Yes truly, the Russian Republic of Chechnya has banned music that is too fast or too slow, ruling that all music should “correspond to a tempo of 80 to 116 beats per minute (BPM)”.

The republic’s leader Ramzan Kadyrov instructed culture minister Musa Dadayev to make Chechen music “conform to the Chechen mentality” thus making the new permitted standard of music relatively slow compared to a lot of modern day pop music and would rule out a number of western genres from being played publicly in the conservative Islamic society.

“Borrowing musical culture from other peoples is inadmissible,” stated Mr Dadayev.

Artists are said to have been given until 1 June to rewrite music that doesn’t meet the criteria – and if their music isn’t reworked, they won’t be allowed to perform it in public.

All western rave and techno music, which tends to be of a higher BPM, would be banned under the new rule.

Well there you have it – better make hay while the sun shines until the end of May – or else!

In the second hour, I was as usual joined by Margaret Mills who revealed information about a Romford man, Humphrey Repton.

It appears that Humphrey Repton modelled himself on Lancelot – “more commonly known as CAPABILITY”- Brown working with landowners across the country to create stunning large scale landscapes between roughly 1788 and 1811.

Listen here to what Margaret told me about this worthy here: –

I hope to have your company again next week,
