This doesn't seem to work for the Proms or opera, or is it only for some 
values of --radiomode?  For example Prom 3 with --radiomode=dafhigh has 
Lyrics: and Comment: strings which I cannot copy and paste either from 
Mediainfo or VLC.  They give the name of the conductor, orchestra, soloist, 
radio presenter and brief details of the works played, but no timing
