Shouldn't we remind the BBC what their charter actually means? How much time and money do they spend on chart music? Undoubtedly there are an awful lot of people who do listen to chart music, but how many of those people are licence payers? I hope that somewhere within all the statistics that we are inundated with the BBC can answer that simple question. We should remind them that they are not a 'commercial' station and as such should cover a broad church - something which they seem less and less likely to do it would seem.
