|R2OK! is now THIS forum, AND a yahoo group, and a website dedicated to the 'BBC Radio 2' station.
R2OK! was borne out of the membership of BBC Radio 2 Messageboards, and in particular the forum that discusses Shows and Music. R2OK! was created because there was a need for harmony amongst the supporters of Radio 2's current schedule policy and is made up of individuals who share either a love for all the music broadcast on R2 or have a tolerance for all music genres and a respect for all R2 listeners each of whom has a right to listen to their favourite music on the world's greatest radio station, BBC Radio 2.
Individual members of R2OK! may or may not be supportive of the current list of Radio 2 presenters but all of the presenters as broadcasting professionals are given our utmost regard and will always receive our respect in discussions.
We at R2OK! recognise that in 2005 Radio 2 has reached a peak in popularity, but in this new century we also recognise that there may be temptations within the management of Radio 2 to change the focus of the station away from a broad spectrum, to align with younger listeners and sway totally toward the mainstream pop music. R2OK! will urge Radio 2 to maintain the current schedule structure, a schedule that offers music to every UK listener.
