RamblinStu The end of 'Folkwaves' on BBC (288* d) RE: The end of Folkwaves 14 Dec 10


In response to my email to Stuart Thomas "It must prove difficult to replace a successful, interesting and popular programme, with ones which will be inferior in every respect, How do your justify that?"

I recieved this reply

Stuart,

Clearly we would not be changing the programme if we thought the replacement would be inferior. Our motivation is simply to make sure we use our valuable airtime to serve as many people in the East Midlands as possible. There's little point in "public service broadcasting" if a large amount of the public aren't listening.

Folkwaves is interesting, it is popular with a core loyal audience but we believe that we should now be providing a programme of wider appeal to all licence fee payers in that slot.

Stuart Thomas

Interesting eh
