Radio Birdsong is back (for now)!

While reading the news of Digit alone, which reported on the disappearance of OneWord (such a shame!) and Core (like every other GCap station except national, so not so much of a shame...) it was mentioned that the Birdsong Channel is back. Hooray!

It's been the mainstay of test transmissions since just before Classic FM was launched, and has proved popular with thousands of listeners as an alternative to music and turgid lowest-common-denominator drivel. Make the most of it, though, because it'll doubtless be replaced soon - and at very little notice.

Surprisingly, though, the newsletter doesn't mention the disappearance of the excellent Fun Radio from Sky Digital and from all the regional digital multiplexes except London. It's one of the mainstays of our family listening (along with CBeebies Radio, Virgin and Classic FM), especially at breakfast time, so I'm very disappointed that they have decided to narrow the opportunities to enjoy it.

I guess it's down to money and marketing.. just one of those things, I suppose...
