Daytime sharing will be tested in Yorkshire across Radio Sheffield, Radio Leeds and Radio York which will have one afternoon show presented by Liz Green from February 2011. At Radio Kent and BBC Sussex and Surrey, the drivetime show will be presented by Dominic King and will start next month on Monday 6 December 2010. The pilots will last for six months.

So who's getting sacked from Radio Leeds then?

By "sharing" they mean "cost-cutting" and reducing localised resources just like it's happened in the mess of what's known as Independent Commercial Radio.

Soo we won't have BBC local broadcasting services at all - it will be, at best, "regional".

Just like the old days, in fact.

Thank heavens for the many online alternatives these day.

A few years ago on Saturday evenings we had an excellent show which was networked across our local stations called 'Sixties Souvenir'. It was presented by a very knowledgable chap called David Wiseman. I wonder where he is now? The programme got the chop for one playing 'Showtunes'. Sad

I remember listening to Sixties Souvenir on Sunday nights after Anne Nightingale got shunted to midnight on Saturdays!

A shame about it being taken off for not playing enough show tunes - they should bloody well axe the holy joe slot on Radio Leeds on Sunday mornings because of the sanctimonious drivel played (Westlife's You Raise Me Up and Alexandra Burke's Halle-freakin-lujah). I keep expecting David Mitchell to turn up and sing 'All I Want To Do' (not the Sheryl Crow or Heart songs - the one in the 'Prayer & A Pint' sketch).
