Glad to have you on board.

We don't have the level of censorship that was being applied at BBC R2MB but on this Gripe Section we do expect the mission statement of R2ok to be respected reasonably; it's on the homepage which still thinks it's 2009 but I'll sort that soon Very Happy

http://www.r2ok.co.uk

Anyway I think what was written there in 2005 still applies but members are welcome to offer their opinion of what they think we are about on here.

The policy thingy says things like

Although individual members of R2OK ! and its Internet Forum may or may not be supportive of the current list of Radio 2 presenters and their executive producers, they are all broadcasting professionals and are given our utmost regard and will always receive our respect in discussions.

and

...with recent changes to the Radio 2 schedule members in the main now share common grievances about the actions of Radio 2's controller and executive producers. In particular there is concern that the Radio 2 management are ignoring their remit which requires:

- "Its music output should include musical genres that do not normally receive wide exposure."

- it should "broadcast a broader range of music than any other major UK radio station."


and

... we also recognised that there are 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, which has happened with the daytime schedule. R2OK ! urge Radio 2 to improve the current schedule by broadening the music content to ensure they offer music to every UK listener.


What is missing from that policy thingy page is, I think, members' general dislike of the Celebrity fixation with new R2 appointments. If someone wishes to try and express that concern in their own words we can put something up on the homepage.
