Equal opportunity media basconstructive criticism

- start personal opinion -
When I tune into our community radio station I do so hoping to get news about & music played by members of our community, stuff with a strong and distinctively local flavor. So how come instead there's all these Brits talking about world news in funny accents? And other programs too, that come from all over the country. It's not like we need to rely on the radio station as our only source of knowledge about the world, we have the web now for nonlocal news. And it's not like there aren't plenty of dedicated people up here who'd be delighted to seize the opportunity to be on air playing the music they love. Time to get back to the roots of community radio.
