BOB SHENNAN: EARLY MORNING LISTENERS MATTER AT THE WEEKENDS!

This petition had 2,372 supporters


Interactive radio shows during the night are important  for both night shift  workers and insomniacs. People also enjoy listening from all around the world in their daytime.  We enjoy the features such as the 3.46 Club and the legendary Sunday Shuffle, together with Richard's warm, relaxed style which is just perfect for that time of the morning. You need to know how much we all appreciate Richard, his musical knowledge and feel we are just as important as the daytime listeners. He deserves better than to be used as a 'stand in' although he always does it extremely well. He should be in the 'starting line up' not on the 'subs bench'.  Savings have to be made but surely not at the expense of one of the best, most experienced presenters you have. Richard's show has a community all of its own and is public service broadcasting at its best. Listeners interact with each other on social media both during and between shows - they really are a fantastic band of listeners. People who are not awake during the night also listen regularly on iplayer. You should be very proud of the show, not ending it. Richard has created an intimate, unique show which he deserves to keep - please listen to your listeners. The BBC are quite happy to pay for 'names' from TV to present radio shows, but are discarding a true professional, much respected by the listeners.  We will not be fobbed off with repeats during the week and recorded shows at the weekend!

The support Richard has received since the announcement has been amazing and his listeners are committed to doing our best to convince the BBC that it has made a short sighted  totally WRONG decision!

Listeners in France, Greece, USA, Canada, Australia, Portugal, Norway, China, Japan, Hong Kong, Thailand, South Africa even Iraq have signed the petition which proves that Richard has national and international appeal! 

PLEASE LISTEN TO YOUR LISTENERS AND LOOK AT THIS DECISION AGAIN!!
