Thanks Cathy but how about saying something to Michelle Guthrie about the ABC’s misinformed plans to axe Australian music (including (The Inside Sleeve, The Daily Planet, The Rhythm Divine, The Live Set & RN Afternoons and Miyuki Jokiranta’s Soundproof and Jazztrack) from Radio National?What about the Sydney-centric approach to putting interesting programs on digital radio which we, in Regional Australia, can’t get? What about the gradual attrition of coverage and skilled staff?
