At risk of going off on wild speculation merging radio and podcasts into BBC Sounds would be of benefit *if* in future due to cost cutting the BBC were to close a digital radio station such as 1Xtra and replace it with daily '1Xtra' branded podcasts.

Yes I suppose so. Its just like how iPlayer has content that has been linearly broadcast alongside content that hasn't... you don't have to go to a different site for BBC Three content
