    Betcha!
    I have to cough at times as do others.
    It does not worry me as long as it is not a drawn out hacking cough nor do any extraneous noises such as a scraping chair etc if you expect 1000+ people to make no noise what so ever you are not going to enjoy going to concerts.

    You are quite right eugeneonagain I do not know how that happened and I apologise most profusely it was a remark made by Isiah Thanu that I was quoting.

    OP: Ask me nicely, and I am your date for the evening, but ONLY within the confines of the Prom concert.

    After a few drinks and a good dinner you might think differently

    There is an app for smart phone or tablet, iPlayer Radio, whereby you can stream all the concerts and/or listen to previous ones. It works really well. I listened to the first Barenboim concert (Elgar 1/Sibelius VC) and the Mozart/Schumann live, plus the Elgar 2 after the fact. I haven't listened to the Birtwistle piece yet.

    Someday, I'll get there in person.

    Strange, is your country in some form still connected to the U.K?

    I'd like some help streaming this in the U.S. I tried a VPN proxy that tricks the site into thinking i'm in the U.K but it had no success.

    Am I hopeless!?
    Would it save everybody a lot of time if I gave up and went mad now?

    Gabriel Ortiz, when not using the BBC iPlayer Radio app, I've been streaming from here (I'm in the US):

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/arti...proms-on-radio

    Scroll down toward the bottom under "how to listen." You can open the player and should have no problem, unles it has to do with your settings.
