GUEST,Graham Bradshaw The end of Celtic Fringe from BBC (9) RE: The end of Celtic Fringe from BBC 16 Dec 10

I hope I don't detect a trend here.

First Folkwaves and then Celtic Fringe. Is this the BBC starting to chop all minority interest progs in order to save money? Hope not.

I was a victim of something similar in the early 90s when Commercial Radio did much the same and my prog (which had run for 10 years)was chopped, along with most of the other niche genres. Now that station is an homogenised clone of all the others.

I thought the BBC was supposed to be 'public service broadcasting'? That now seems to be what they perceive as the 'majority' of the public, and not all the various minorities (which together of course make up a substantial body of listeners).
