Absolutely loving the new BBC Solent jingles but hope BBC Devon don't adopt this new package. Imagine the uproar it would cause...cue listeners switching off and letters of protest to MP's. Devon folk are a nice bunch, don't get me wrong, but so backward in so many ways...
Errrrrr- think you'll find as home to 2 cities, we're not as backward as youd stereotype us.
However Radio Devon does need a refresh. But listening to Radio Kernow, the current package fits in well. But with the impact coming Pirate FM later this year, I'd guess that's the time Cornwall and Devon will get the refresh
Depends which part of Devon you're looking at. Some parts definitely are a bit backward, but others like Plymouth and Exeter are definitely way more metropolitan.
Radio Devon needs some wholesale change if it is to justify its continued existence. It's down to 164,000 reach in a market that's over a million strong, and they really are losing ground badly, especially when compared to their neighbour Radio Cornwall who have a 25% reach in their market compared to just 16%.
