In 2004, the Swiss Roman Radio proposed to its audience a series of five one hour broadcasts devoted to George Onslow : it was entitled "Do you like Onslow ?". These five discussions were recorded in Clermont-Ferrand on February 21st and 22nd of 2004 ; they were aired from March 1st to 5th, and again from December 27th to 31st. Musicologist and Onslow's biographer Baudime Jam * was the guest of the journalist David Meichtry for this rediscovery of George Onslow on the waves, thirty years after the famous boradcasts produced by Carl de Nys on France Musique.
