Heard a story today about many American towns dont allow clthes lines. It cheapens the towns look apparently. This makes the use of clothes dryers widespread. In the country of freedome no clothes lines are allowed in many towns! Someone made a doco about it and I heard it on the earth beat program played on ABC news radio from the BBC's Earthbeat program.

I musta missed that story.Did you check out my post in the SBS thread? That was a story BBC World Wide had on this morning.
I love listening to BBC overnight on News Radio.Absolutely fantastic programs-except the soccer snore-fest most of Sunday morning.

Anyone else enjoying the 20 year celebration stories on the collapse of Communism & fall of the Berlin wall?
For those interested that haven't caught any of it,have a link:BBC 1989

Oh,the "joy" of the classified football results.:hypnotized:

Still,it's better than listening to "hit" radio at 4am on a Sunday morning.

I quite enjoy listening to Radio 1 and Five Live - two stations that the ABC should consider bringing the format to Australia.

I listen to a show called Sports World. Even though it should be called Football World since about 85% of the show's content is soccer

I disagree with that.At least 95% of the show is about soccer.Plus they have the 5 minutes of hell they call the Classified Results. :hypnotized:

LOL well I was being generous with my guess. Also the e-mails and texts they read out all seem to be from those countries where those e-mail scams come from.

What has happened to SBS 6 on digital doing the BBC World Service? I liked listening to it especially when ABC Newsradio was not broadcasting the World Service.

SBS Radio 6 is now broadcasting 24/7 Eurovison
"SBS Eurovision"

I say it's unlikely that SBS will ever bother with SBS Radio 6 once the eurovision is over.
Let alone why they even bothered with migrating to DAB+ and should have stayed on analog

Bit of a bizarre story:

Chris Moyles, a high-profile radio DJ on BBC Radio 1, has used his breakfast show to launch a lengthy on-air rant against the broadcaster, telling listeners that he had not been paid for two months.

They've been on strike. So I didn't get to hear Sports World last night. Reminded me of the times in the 80s when ABC TV went on strike and they had a slide on the screen with tone

I suspect that the English-language service probably won't be affected so much, but some of the services in other languages could be put under some strain.

Mark Thompson, the BBC's director general, has confirmed that the BBC World Service will be subjected to major cuts to both services and jobs as a result of funding decreases over the coming years.

To say the least, not the best of days for Radio 4... two presenters accidentally call the culture secretary by the name "Jeremy C--t", while another ends up interviewing the wrong person.

The Spy Report:

BBC Radio 4 has apologised for a series of embarrassing incidents on Monday, in which two presenters botched the name of a government politician with obscene consequences, and another accidentally interviewed an imposter claiming to be an MP.

On Radio 1 at the moment is Chris Moyles attempting to set a world record for the longest show ever for Comic Relief. He's entering his 18th hour on air and they're trying to stay on for nearly 52 hours! The BBC is showing this on the red button on TV as well. It's also being livestreamed on their site: www.bbc.co.uk/radio1
