Noooooooooo!

Writing about web page http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/5003420.stm

Apparently the conclusion of a media think tank is that the BBC should be forced to privatise Radio 1 and 2. Damned if that should happen – the BBC stations are the only ones where you don't have to put up with crappy annoying adverts all the time (except for their own shows), and are much better stations than any commercial ones. There's a very marked difference between commercial radio presenters and BBC ones, and my preference is very much for non–commercialised BBC type ones.

Perhaps most amusingly, the author of the report argued that Radio 1 and 2 offered a "minimum public service role". A BBC press release shows that combined Radio 1 and 2's breakfast shows are listened to by over 14.6 million people every week. And combined BBC Radio has a 55.1% share of all listening. Minimal public service role eh?
