BBC SOUNDS takes over from RADIO
Oct 17th, 2018, 3:46pm
 
Just noticed that RADIO has disappeared as an option on the standard BBC web pages -being replaced by SOUNDS.
Of course--this is the way of the world these days. Apparently "the young" don't listen to the radio "anymore".
The launch earlier this year of the BBC Sounds App remains a work in progress(certainly for IOS), but a quick click and play on SOUNDS on the BBC web pages is interesting and worth a surf!
I just hope the smart phone apps get updated quickly-or rather--they better -or else!

Just goes to prove the idiots ARE running the asylum!
On Radio 2's Good Morning Sunday a video clip of one of it's presenters falling in the water was mentioned.  Find it I cannot.  
Gone are the Radio Listings, had to use the Radio Times website to find the name of the programme and then the bbc website search box to find the programme's webpage.

Reith would turn in his grave to see the depths the BBC has gone to join the yoof movement!

Sounds?  It's RADIO.  It's what the BBC was formed for!
