A comprehensive schedule for Christmas Music specials on BBC for 2013?

Every year I look forward to BBC Radio's Christmas music specials (especially choral concerts), including the Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols on Christmas Eve. In 2005 the Beeb broadcast a concert called 'Carols by Candlelight' by the Chapter House Choir that was delightful. And so every year, I scan the schedules of the various BBC Radio services to see what I can find, but I invariably miss something or other (I'm in the US, btw). For all you radioheads in the UK: is there an all-in-one place to go that has a complete list of that kind of thing?

How to frame concert posters without "ruining" them?

My boyfriend collects posters from the many concerts he attends. He is averse to using store-bought poster frames because he thinks this will ruin the poster. Is this true? If so, is there a cheaper method to protect the posters than custom mounting and framing for over $100 apiece? [more inside]

Specific site for legal bootleg downloads -- help me re-find it please!

On my old computer (bookmarks now lost, sadly), I used to always go to a site that had free legal downloads of unreleased bootlegs of music shows. There was a bit of an emphasis on classic rock -- Dylan, Neil Young, Rolling Stones, etc. Now I can't remember what it was called! Can anyone help?

When and where did I see Chicago on the "Chicago 16" tour?

Does anybody really know what time it was (in 1982, or 1983, when I saw my first concert...)? For a piece on first-ever concerts, I'm trying to figure out when I saw Chicago on their "Chicago 16" tour. I'm guessing it was 1982 and it was in St. Paul, Minnesota, so probably at the St. Paul Civic Center, though I can't swear to that. Are there any master concert lists for the band Chicago, or a ticket stub somewhere? I'd also be curious to see what we paid and if there was an opening act...

Where do bootleg concert shirts come from?

Get me to the concert at the right time!

I have tickets to Flogging Molly tonight at Hammerstein Ballroom in NYC. Work is killing me, and I probably only have an hour and a half (including a half hour of travel time - 15 min to, 15 min from) to slip away for the concert. Doors were at 6 and the tickets say the concert is at 7. What time do you think I should I arrive if I want to avoid any dead time and get a good solid hour of the band? I don't care about any opening act and I don't mind missing the beginning or the end of the set - the goal is to avoid any time just standing around waiting.

Researching Acoustics/Acousticians

I'm looking for information about accoustics and, wait for it, acousticians. How does one train for this? Is it a branch of engineering? Does it entail studying architecture? Music? I've found only very general information or, on the other hand, very technical stuff. I'm looking to be able to ask an acoustician some (mildly) intelligent questions about his work for a broadcast. Any web resources you can think of would be really appreciated. Thanks!

The economics of travelling bands

I'm told that for bands, the money is in live gigs - not much comes in from album sales. However. I was at a concert in Los Angeles recently, full house of about 500. Three bands, of which two had recently played Coachella. $25 general admission. This, to me, seems like terrible money. What's really going on? Help me overthink my plate of beans. [more inside]
