BBC Music Magazine, never heard of it, but i assume it`s
content would not interest me based on the BBC`s music
output!

Calling it `Music` is a bit misleading, surely Classical
Music Monthly would be more apt, and maybe attract new
readers?

In the 80's (83-89) I had subscriptions to CREEM, CIRCUS,
ROLLING STONE, and GUITAR WORLD.

Bill, if the strap line is correct, I donít think it needs to change its name. The BBC mag says it is the best selling classic music magazine in the world.

So I guess its audience know it is there

I can see both of your points.

It is small, but the strapline is there. 

Plus, a cursory glance of that cover, or any cover, will give you an idea of the kind of magazine it is. 

Their rival, now defunct, was CLASSIC FM MAGAZINE:

I used to read ROLLING STONE (not good), SPIN (better), OPTION (easily the best, covered all sorts of music, but didn't last long) and sometimes THE WIRE (a UK mag, covers the "avant-garde" of various musical genres, but I never subscribed because it cost too damn much).

The interweb failed to post my wordy response, so I'll sum it up:

How is 'Music' a misleading title for that magazine?

Peter, it`s like calling a magazine devoted to football
`Sport`, when a magazine is fighting for space on the
shelves, i think it would help to have a more specific
title.
