BBC Radio Merseyside Cuts

I don’t want to get too political but can anyone answer the question why has the most listened to local radio station outside London had a 20% cut in funding but Radio 4 gets off scot free?!

Radio Merseyside plays a huge role in the life of our city and has showcased loads of new talent. It will be a real loss to the promotion of culture in Liverpool and the Merseyside region should this service be diminshed.

Sorry, The Archers will be no substitute for this vital local service.

    You can listen to The Archers on a Sunday morning on Radio 4 and it is so PC now it is boring. Local radio without the adverts is a great service, would it not save money to move out of the City to a place in the suburbs, do they really need a city centre base?

    Phil, controversial comment but worth considering. Why not a studio on an industrial park in Speke? Certainly cheaper!!

    Why aren’t the BBC considering solutions like this is my question.
