Not Strictly (BBC)Local
« on: April 10, 2016, 05:49:41 PM »
Beacon Radio's 40th birthday.......Have just spent the most delightful day listening to the celebrations (on line) .....with the likes of Gordon Astleyand many others. The reason it was so good was that there used to be a breakfast show with an engaging mix of music and chat and information and news features - just like BBC LR used to be in the 80s. Wish we could go back to that.......

Well there was some talk a few months ago that the breakfast shows were going to return to a more informal approach with less news. The trouble is that this type of show will not suit a lot of the current presenters who have been brought in as news people.
