Oh god that sounds awful. So it sounds like they’d be playing more modern stuff on Radio 2 and 6music. Which would go down horribly with listeners I imagine. So long as they don’t kill popmaster!

This is so very W1A. The directors at the BBC are once again looking very out-of-touch with their audiences.

It's the label "BBC Pop Music" that upsets me more than the proposal. Asian Network is hardly pop, I doubt the listeners of 6Music would call their music that, and Radio 1 is intended to be more about "new music".

It’s a massive sweeping generalisation isn’t it — from the way I look at it this could be terrible or good, it’s just an odd change, never would have predicted it.

I thought they were actually moving towards a BBC youth strand - mixing Radio 1, 1Xtra and BBC Three. Which sounded less terrible than this idea.
