Less regulation means all local radio stations will pander solely to the largest
audience share. The market doesn?t care about culture or the local communities.
Just look at the state of the USAs local radio stations, owned almost entirely by
multinationals. How is that local? How about encouraging a local radio co-operative
instead? That way the stations will remain local yet have a more influential platform
with advertisers, as well as shared resources.

Also given that the BBC continues to increase its audience share and the advent of
Podcasts, is it now finally time there was a dedicated commercial alternative to Radio
4? Some of the most popular Podcasts are comedy based, yet only BBC radio
provides any real scripted comedy. There is no alternative drama of any kind. No
drama, comedy or narrative.
