Children In Need Rocks Manchester.
« on: November 17, 2011, 09:55:53 PM »
Yes it rocked!

And ...

You know what..it was a celebration of British music.

We had

Snow Patrol

Elbow

Coldplay


( of course JLS etc)

But those programmers of the tight commercial playlists on BBC local radio take note.

We do not want many tracks from the american artists or an exclusive 80s throwback!

Get a grip you need to.

Those bands I have mentioned have more than one track..and there are many others.

And many other british bands that HAVE to be on our local stations.


Good for Garry Barlow, he writes his own songs too..and is sort of standing up to the X Factor machine!

Has MarK Thompson any friends at the moment?  I doubt it, the way he is trying to decimate local radio.  Just hope he won't be successful!  I have listened to 2 excellent shows today on Radio Merseyside - Roger Lyon at noon and Billy Maher's Weekend Inn - both excellent - and they are 2 of the presenters who could lose their shows in the new year.  Later on today (1.00 p.m. - 3.00 p.m. only, because of football) Frankie Connor will be in the same boat. This is definitely not on!

Yes, Rita.

I think it would be safe to say..and I borrow the lyrics from the wonderful Coldplay.

Mark Thompson is no longer "The King" (was he ever?) AND friendless.

His castle stands on pillars of salt and pillars of sand.

It is crumbling!

Because, he has tried to destroy a public service, because he does not believe in proper consultation, because he has authorised a huge spend in Salford , after a huge spend on Broadcasting House, because he shows no respect for his staff and the fee payer, and because HE KNOWS, that there is no justification to cut BBC local radio given the huge management cost that was not even addressed in Delivering Quality First.

This DG King is dead..long live the king! (does anyone know if Greg Dyke could be available!)

Oh and Wowzers! Viva la Vida as part of the New Year Fireworks!

Mark Thompson take note!




You see , you may have a bit of a problem now..what with moving loads of your sports reporting to Salford ..just before the most important sports event in our country for possibly ever..Hope you enjoy being a lonely puppet on a string, hope that you know how many people want you gone as soon as possible . Enjoy your destruction  of the BBC, in the meantime.
