So, in the spirit of the Big Society, I would like to offer my re-designed Radio 1. The BBC are welcome to follow my grand plan, and I give it freely to them. I believe it will make the station much better for its target audience, and will fulfil the BBC's requirement to not just be another broadcaster, but to be a unique public service broadcaster. It will also save them a lot of money - millions of pounds per year.
- Get rid of all DJs who don't play at least 15 records an hour. Replace with new, cheap, hungry DJs.
- Don't play any music from bands who are already signed to a record label. The commercial stations can give them all the airplay they need.
- Put a lot of person time into going through CDs that have been sent in by new bands. Play all of these that are good.
- Don't play anything that has been anywhere near Simon Cowell.
What about it BBC? Have you got the bottle?
