XFM's coup de gr?¢ce

by Suw on May 23, 2007

I've put my follow-on post about Xfm axing all its daytime DJs over on Strange Attractor, partly because it seemed a bit out of place here, but mainly because that blog has a different audience, one I think should read about this.
I'm so sad to see what XFM is doing to itself, and I can only hope that listeners are disappointed enough at 10am on Tuesday 29th May when the new DJ-free schedule kicks in that we'll see a revolt akin to the post-Capital reformatting protest of 98.

What's all the fuss about – it works well in the US (listen to Jackfm) and any DJ/presenter with talent will still make it. I am 43 and been passionate about radio for 38 years and still a presenter on Kent ILR stations as well as Radio Caroline.

This isn't about what “works” but about what I like. I want good DJs, not a computer-aided list of what's most popular.
And if all radio stations go this way, where will the jobs be for DJs?
