Oban FM fails to log

Oban FM in North Argyll has breached its licence condition by not providing a copy of their output following a recent complaint to Ofcom.

The community station, in the Highlands of Scotland, received a complaint from a listener who said that contributions from guest presenter John Macgregor were biased against the local authority, and infringed the privacy of their representatives. The complainant also objected that the presenter, as a local businessman, was able to give undue prominence to his personal views and business interests.

The station was unable to provide a copy of the broadcast saying it had experienced problems with its logging system, which have since been rectified.

Failure to keep recordings of its output for 42 days after transmission is a breach against condition 8 of its licence and Ofcom said they will keep the incident on record.
