Manx Radio

Recommended Posts

Why the fuck should the Manx taxpayer fund the Brindley Broadcasting System to the tune of £1m a year?

OK enough time has past to start to review the new Manx Radio output

Dealing with a positive in this post

Andy Wint at lunchtime, with a full time producer, is the big success story.

This programme shows how local radio can really succeed.

Unlike Talking Head, which relied on just repeating the old morning mandate material, now we get the news agenda being moved forward.

Mr Wint is not looking for music to fill his allotted airtime.  He wants to engage with studio guests and can fill the full hour with ease.

Its clearly not the old Manninline, as very few people now want to call in, yet the standard of debate is great.

I understand this programme change is down to new MD Chis Sully so he can be congratulated on this programme change.

Might take a few RAJAR figures to show the improvement, but I think it will come.

 

Give it a few more weeks and see how many people will put up with being talked at. Like any self-obsessed know-it-all they are interesting for a short while.

Nice to see you saying something good about Manx Radio. Is it your first positive post about the station ?

Don't forget the fella that got escorted from the building, and Paul Moulton, only ever 4 people have ever criticised the station and they all used to work there.. Always just sour grapes.

I switched on just before the news yesterday morning. Apparently things were getting exciting because there were more people calling in for the quiz "Where's Wotton". I didn't bother to stay for the news.

This morning, things were getting "exciting" because they were going to play some record or other.

Whatever the Programme Controller and bosses at Manx Radio want is up to them, but at a cost of £1milllion per annum to the taxpayer, this stuff becomes just bile.
