BBC Radio 4 reignites the DAB v FM debate
The DAB debate which started a decade ago has been brought back to life by BBC Radio 4, with the results somewhat familiar.
Ten years ago listeners complained of poor reception, and BBC Radio 4’s Today Programmes has sparked a debate resulting in listeners complaining of exactly the same thing.
On Monday morning, James Cridland and DigitalRadioUK’s and Laurence Harrison appeared on the show to defend DAB, and talk about the possible ‘end of FM’. Both provided facts and figures about DAB listing and a multi-platform world, but listeners reacted by complaining of the lack of reception.
Then today, Folder Media’s Matt Deegan also appeared to talk more facts and figures, and attempt to convince us all that most people who consume DAB are happy with the service.
