Brilliant to see that the North West of England (and also London) has more people listening to digital radio than analogue radio.
Now we need a changeover date to switch off the pointless analogue transmitters around the country that are haemorrhaging listeners and are, these days, completely environmentally unfriendly.
There are far too many old radio anoraks standing in the way of progress. If we relinquished all the wasteful analogue transmitters and halted their pointless burning away on single frequencies that nobody but a few radio anoraks bother to listen to, we could have far greater choice with many more stations reaching many more people. And instead of having to limit their quality in order to all squeeze into what space is currently available, there would be plenty of space for plenty of high quality radio stations.
It’s good to see that London has joined the lead that the North West originally made in turning its back on analogue broadcasting. Now the rest of the country will rapidly follow until analogue radio is no more. Horay!
