Welsh music dispute could leave BBC Radio Cymru short of tunes

A dispute between Welsh language composers and the BBC could leave Radio Cymru unable to play some of its most popular songs.

More than 300 musicians and publishers are demanding a higher price when their records are played on the station.

Despite negotiations, there is still no agreement between the BBC and EOS - the new group representing Welsh artists.

Without progress by the end of the month, Radio Cymru will have to operate without access to over 30,000 songs.

But Dafydd Roberts of EOS told BBC Radio Wales' Oliver Hides that the dispute would affect all broadcasters in the UK.
