In January this year over 5,000 listeners and musicians posted their appreciation here at Fresh On The Net for the backbone of BBC Introducing – its unique network of 32 shows on local radio stations across England and the Channel Islands. See the original blog post here…
Those shows, staffed by enthusiasts and volunteers have been supporting local music communities around the country with airplay, interviews and sessions ever since the network was founded in 2007. Many have worked to set up local gigs, festival stages and outside broadcasts for musicians in their area.
And all those local shows have forwarded their top local talent to BBC Introducing colleagues on local and national stations.
From August onwards, all that is about to change.
