Review of Oktoberfest (deleted)

As someone who has been presenting German music for a North-American audience in the last eleven years, I was very interested to listen to this piece. That's why I rate this piece with a "very much". It's well produced, very nicely hosted and gives a glimpse on the World Music scene in Germany. But I was expecting a wider view on the German music scene, even a spotlight on Munich or Bavaria, with great Electronica, Industrial, Experimental, Rock and Pop tunes.
That was a bit disappointing for me that the program just highlighted a very specific genre, an failed to give an overall impression of the German music scene with its diversity, openness and creativity.
Even for Oktoberfest you could have picked some very interesting crossover projects, that used the traditional Bavarian musicel roots and blend it in with modern sounds and ideas.

Oh well...Prost.
