Local Radio
« on: Oct 08, 2019, 08:17:43 AM »
I have commented about local radio in the past. Over the past few months mist have been on holiday for two or three weeks with stand-ins in place. All of them have done an excellent job. One commented they were on a far lower salary. One wonders why the BBC keeps the more expensive ones in place. It is local radio so does not need any big name just a reasnobly competent individual.


The worse are the early morning ones when I usually catch the headlines and traffic and turn off/over. It is like having a bunch of school kids presenting although I suspect some could do it better.


Moan over!

It must be 25 years since I've listened to a radio.
Make every day count. Every day is precious.

I listen to local radio when i turn off LBC at 10am   ;D    I don't think the presenters are paid vast sums as I don't suppose anyone outside the area has heard of them.
I'm looking forward to summer, the rain gets warmer.

I spent a few days away last week and sadly found the local radio of a similar poor quality. The accuracy of traffic reports definitely needs improving!

We only listen to BBC Radio Scotland, I love the phone In Shoes, the Audio Book Programmes, and the talk shows. News and Travel on the hour. Suits me just fine...
