For two decades on a Saturday morning, Janice Forsyth has hosted a wonderful magazine style music show on BBC Radio Scotland.
It’s not just the music that makes it special, although quite where else one would hear such an eclectic mix presented in a seamless and relaxed style I don’t know.
It’s not just the guests or the quizzes or the chat.
It is a radio show which is greater than the sum of its parts.
Now BBC bosses have decided to axe the show in favour of……….more sport!
Christ! there is wall to wall sport on Radio Scotland. Tune in at random and you’ll probably hear some eejit (broadcaster or member of the public) sounding off about it.
Usually it’s football.
Usually it’s about Celgers or Rantic (see what I did there?)
Shame on the BBC bosses who have made this decision.
I have a feeling they have underestimated what the public’s reaction will be.
