One word: Spotify. If you're still wasting your time on broadcast radio (or television) you deserve all you get.

Fascinating.

An article outlining a complaint by one specific listener that a specific radio station has programming that doesn't meet his specific listening preferences.

Lookitme, lookitme! I'm not afraid to take on the Establishment! Stick it to the Man!

I just lurrrved this stinger.

"I am sure I am not alone in wanting to support you in your efforts to penetrate the mind sets and machinations of the ABC in order to improve this tax payer funded public service"

Ouch! I'd curl up and cry if I was on the receiving end of that poisoned barb.

Also, now I think about it, if I had written it, and had caused it to be published.

Well, I share the writer's frustration, having written on a few occasions about what I thought was bias and I am a long-standing supporter of the ABC. 'Round and round the mulberry bush' was the tune I whistled, much of the time.
