Well fellow messageboarders we are approching the last 3 hours of us the licence payers being allowed by the BBC to have our say on all things local.
So Im certainly going to be having some fun this evening and it would be great to hear from as many posters as possible lets go out with a bang.

Looking at the other recent threads, it does seem that the closing of these boards has brought out the worst in some people.
I remain passionate in my believe that 3CR, even with its many faults, is amongst the best in Local radio. Unfortunately if there is something I don't like, I can no longer come here and say so.All I can do is tune to another station.I can't help feeling that the lack of feedback from these boards, even negative criticism, will lead our local radio to be increasingly out of touch with the listeners.

The Mods have got itchy fingers tonight, modded for the word WHO!! This one will probably go the same way
Message 9**, 27 Minutes Ago

This posting has been temporarily hidden, because a member of our Moderation Team has referred it to the Hosts for a decision as to whether it contravenes the House rules in some way. We will do everything we can to ensure that a decision is made as

It looks like most posters are making the moderators earn there money tonight and why not not good on them.
For the past few years the licence paying audience have aired there views on BBC 3cr which has not gone down to well with some others who take part on here.
The people who have kicked up the most fuss has usualy been the very people who run the station,with managing editors and presenters coming on here trying to defend the indefensable.
BBC 3cr was until around 1998 a good local radio station,the last decent managing editor was Andrew Wilson who I work with for a while when he was at BBC radio Cambridgeshire and then at BBC 3cr.
He was a man who had a natural talent for providing the audience with what they wanted.
He was the one to drag 3cr right into the heart of regional radio for the eastern counties,he introduced us to the 7-10pm evening show with Mark Whall and on a Friday with Jon Gaunt followed by a few months later the legend Steve Madden.
The same goes for the weekends with the likes of Paul Barnes and David Clayton.
One of his biggest regrets was not to return Richard Spendlove back to his Saturday 9pm-1am slot on 3cr,which he had cleared the schedule for but decided to carry on with The Club,3cr were the first station to carry Richards programme in the eastern counties region in 1990.
Sadly they were the first to drop him in September 1993,many listeners in this area still listen to Richard and I feel Mr Norman missed a chance to return Richard to the 3cr airways as part of his April schedule changes.
I hope at least Richard will stand in for Colin Berry when he is away being Colin does the same when Richard is on holiday,Richard is the most listened to phone inn presenter on BBC local radio so he is doing something right long may he continue and I for one will always be listening.

Keith Skues is a man who has provided us with the most informed and entertaining local radio anywhere in the U.K.
The late show weeknights 10pm-1am have not been the same for since Keith was axed back in 2005 by yet again the faceless bosses of the BBC,the late show has not had as many listeners since Cardboard Shoes was moved onto weekends only.
For 10 years he always never lost track of working hard putting together night after night a programme that would be enjoyed by millions across the region.
Its very good news that Angus Moorat thought Keith was the man to present Rock and Roll Heaven which started last year,and credit to Mr Norman which is somthing I do not always do but for moving Pirate Radio Skues from 3cr M.W only,now the programme is on ALL of BBC 3cr frequencies F.M and M.W since last week Easter Sunday.
Long may Cardboard Shoes continue and its about time BBC 3cr knew what a professional and interesting music presenter they have.
