RNZ Concert has a special place in the hearts of many New Zealanders of all ages. Please don’t take it away.
The proposed listening options for RNZ Concert won’t work. This affects 170,000 regular listeners, but it also affects their whānau and friends, who care about them. We all deserve better.
Governments of other developed countries with similar populations do much more for their people:
In Ireland, the government provides classical, youth music, and indigenous language FM channels (plus electronic, alternative, children’s and many more on digital radio)
Denmark and Finland are similar. In Norway, there are channels for Jazz, Folk and sport.
And of course, developed countries with greater populations, like the UK and Australia, provide their citizens with even more.
Here’s a chance to improve public media for all music-lovers, keeping the long-standing and proud legacy of RNZ Concert alive while building an exciting, long-overdue youth network.
