I have been listening to Monocle for more than 5 years now. I love the content and the tone. Much better quality and substance than what is put out by our public broadcaster in Canada, the CBC. Who I find limiting and self-important.
Excellent reportage but utterly annoying and way to many bars of music. Must they waste time by punctuating it with this pounding music?
