I want the format to be <nameshort>/<firstbcastyear>/10 Oct where 10
Oct is derived from the <firstbcastmonth>

Instead of the sub-directory being 10 Oct it would be simply be 10 and
for purely personal reasons I don't want that.

They all exist for the 2 programmes I identified and indeed I use a
variation of those which already defined as <firstbcastdate>. They form
part of the filename to identify 'Sounds of the 60s with Tony
Blackburn' which would simply overwrite the previous file if I didn't
have the subfolder structure which I've chosen.

I don't think I'm expecting GiP to work out what to do with each file.
I have preferences set in general but choose to do things slightly
differently for a few programmes.
