LOVERS OF BAD MUSIC In Command Everywhere, says Professor

Speaking at the resumed conference of organists at the Royal College of Music, London, Professor P. C. Buck, Professor of Music at London University, said that "all the B.B.C.s in the world and almost every place in the world that produces music" was in the command of the person who liked had music.

"People do love the best when they hear it. I do not believe that there is any country in the world Where you will not get people to love the best music if you give it to them."

Many people, he said, thought that taste did not matter, but personally the whole of his life was founded on the belief that nothing else mattered. "If you have not got taste you had better commit suicide," he said.

"The enemy of musicians is not the person who does not like music; they do not matter. The enemy of the musician is the person who likes had music. That is the person you have to fight tooth and nail all your life. That is the person who is in command of all the B.B.C.s in the world and almost every place that produces music."
