Further to our recent news items, reporting that Pink Floyd's legendary 1979 album, The Wall, is the focus of Stuart Maconie's BBC Radio 2 programme "Critical List", originally due to air on January 22nd, then January 29th, we bring you news that the show has been further delayed.

The show was initially postponed due to the BBC's coverage of the Tsunami Benefit Concert being held in Cardiff. Stuart himself told us (prior to the 22nd) that the show had been shunted back to the 29th, but as anyone who tuned in last night found out, the show was replaced with another. We now understand that it will be aired on February 12th, and are seeking assurances from the BBC that this will be the final change to this programme's position on the schedules.

"Critical List" is a series in which Maconie suggests albums that should in the collection of every popular music aficionado. He casts his eye in this one hour programme on Roger Waters' acclaimed, semi-autobiographical masterpiece. Whilst we cannot confirm this at the moment, we don't believe that it includes any interview segments with past or present members of the band.

The programme airs at 20:30hrs GMT, and can be heard on FM radio, DAB Digital radio, Freeview, NTL/Telewest/Sky Digital, or online via the website. After broadcast, the show will be available to listen to over the internet, on demand, for seven days.
