Disappearing from the airwaves...

Beth had left the free Luton On Sunday open on a middle page for me to look at yesterday, while I was checking my emails; co-incidentally, I found a recent comment posted on an blog entry from 2005...

The story goes that some people took offence at comments made during a phone call on the occasionally (and - I might say - refreshingly) risqu� Ern and Vern Saturday show, and the show has been suspended for the summer. Of course, the BBC is paying close attention to its output at the moment, but I do worry that the politically correct brigade is not only misrepresenting the BBC but causing such summary action.

The anonymous commenter suggests:

Please register your desire to reinstate Ern and Vern by either sending your support by way of email petition to:


and/or writing to the Station Editor at BBC 3CR (address on BBC website) and Tim Bishop, Head of Regions at BBC Norfolk.

Although - with any luck - the show will return, I think I probably will write a letter, if only to make the point that there are people who like a bit of adventurous entertainment as a break from the blandness that seems to pervade local radio.
