I remember him on the Mannin Line. He was brilliant. 

Equally as good when he was Count Morenze. :thumbsup:

Indeed, not many characters left although I'd say Ramsey has been better than the rest of the island on that front for the last 30 years or so.

http://www.audiocontentfund.org.uk/

A better model for the outdated grant we give to one radio station. It would not see the end of Manx Radio, it would just put the money towards developing a wealth of easily accessible Manx content, handed down from one generation to the next. Instead of subsidising Phil Collins records.

The Audio Content Fund is a new scheme supported by the UK Government to provide funding for original radio and audio production.

It exists to provide financial support for radio programming that is difficult to fund on a commercial basis.

In 2019 it will invite applications from audio production companies planning to make content for UK radio broadcasters.

Applications will be assessed by an independent panel of experts and judged against a set of agreed evaluation criteria.

The Audio Content Fund is a not-for-profit company supported by a grant from the UK Government’s Department of Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS). Further details and specific guidance on how to apply will be available in early 2019.

I still smile at this thread. The Government spend £1bn a year and MF manage nearly 250 pages about the 0.08% which goes to MR. Just think what we can do if we went for something significant.

Just been reading that thread via the link. It's seven years old now. Some of AT's comments and the comments/predictions about the Space Industry. Hilarious :lol:
