The Guardian misses the point

Geoff Lloyd, Absolute Radio dealer-in-whimsy, is a man who knows his stuff.

It’s sad that – particularly when there are so many podcasts appearing (some of which are rather good), The Guardian’s decided to cut its radio review.

You should probably do the petition thing. I’m off to do that right now.*

I totally agree with you! I signed the ‘In The Dark’ radio petition last week and am annoyed by The Guardian’s cut back on radio.
The great radio and media coverage is the reason I buy the Guardian!
I’ve had an idea for a website that encourages listeners to recommend their own favourite radio programmes, complete with radioplayer links and social media intergration.
As a radio futurologist I wonder what you think of the idea?
