That is fantastic news!

IMHO, yes. I believe you could put "Radio 4" as the "location". It  
wouldn't be marked up as an hCard as a "real" physical location would  
but I think it's a valid value.

Definitely not, in my opinion. It looks to me like hCalendar is  
perfect for describing a broadcast:

Swap "service" for "location" and you're good to go.
