Re Father and Son
While on a visit to Manchester I happened to tune in to the show and I thought ‘wow’ and saved it to my car radio.
The combination of chat, music and stories about Jamaica and England in the sixties seventies and the interaction of ‘father and son is the perfect winning formula.I love the songs -songs which I heard as a child growing up. If you don’t tune into the show then do so from next week -I promise you won’t be disappointed!
I have always loved ture stories and sayings too. You know when your parents used to sit and chat ‘adult stuff’ and you’d pretend to watch the TV but all the time you were listening and thinking ‘what! I didn’t know that’. It’s a refreshing change.
I often love your show. I want to offer some advice in a positive spirit, because this morning I found both your content and presentation difficult. My suggestions are:
- prepare a structure of songs and topics so you can stay focussed and avoid long periods of vague talking that can be difficult for listeners to follow and make sense of. Make some points about what you find interesting about a topic in advance, maybe plan some callers in advance to offer their thoughts too, and when you have covered those points or feel that you or the listener might have lost interest, move on.
- read the section of Ofcom’s Broadcasting Code called ‘Harm and Offence’ (Section Two, 2.3: http://stakeholders.ofcom.org.uk/broadcasting/broadcast-codes/broadcast-code/harmoffence/ ). This mornings show was largely based on series of remarks that stereotyped and discriminated against women on the basis of their gender. If you don’t mean to suggest that all women are like you say then make that clear when you say it. Don’t speak in a way that generalises the behaviour of some people to all people of a certain group. You should also make clear that these are just your opinions and try to provide some balance of opinions.
(This is just my interpretation of the Ofcom code on causing offence – I’m sure people at Peace FM understand it better than I do, but I wanted to offer my opinion anyway. Thanks for listening)
