UK, the public pays a license fee for the BBC. Similarly in other
countries, some taxes go into a national radio-TV service, considered
as public service. The public is justified in feeling that they
pay for the radio/TV service and that they can have their say in
a socio-cultural entity, RSA operates with collaborators who offer
their time and services and the radio has very limited resources
and cannot produce programmes on-demand.
RSA still provides a free service, without the audience contributing
anything to its running. Although their opinions are always welcome,
individuals cannot expect to dictate or impose their own tastes
to the rest of the community.
You will appreciate
that as the only cultural radio in the English language station
in Nerja, we have a duty to satisfy a broad range of majority and
minority tastes, and across all ages, on only one wavelength.
