I saw a poster for a Pink Floyd tribute band earlier today, which bore a hell of an endorsement. "Possibly the best concert experience you will ever have", it said. Who was responsible for this encomium? According to the poster, it was "The BBC". Did the Corporation have a representative poll of its staff from the DG downwards, or are the band's management parlaying up a doubtless heartfelt tribute from a Radio Shropshire work experience student? I think we should be told.

It is in fact the work of the oft overlooked "BBC Concert Opinions Unit" in Maida Vale - two elderly spinsters, a radiogram that smells of lavender polish and a Baby Belling to warm the Horlicks.

Are they still going? I thought they went the way of the Pronunciations Unit just after Producer Choice.

Didn't they merge with the Tribute Band Forum on the third floor of BH? I had heard there was some problem with the transfer of the biscuit fund.
