More tune in to Radio Oxford

The number of people listening to BBC Radio Oxford shot up during the last quarter, according to listening figures released yesterday.

In the quarter ending Sunday, December 16, a weekly average of 81,000 people tuned into BBC Radio Oxford – 19,000 more than in the previous quarter.

Jack FM’s listening figures dropped marginally by 1,000 to 54,000, while there was the same drop for Glide FM which was listened to by 17,000 people on average each week.

Heart Thames Valley also saw its listeners drop by the same amount to 387,000.

I'm surprised by this.
I find the content far less appealing than it used to be but i suppose that puts me in the minority.

No, you are right. Phil Gayle is great, but most of the time Malcolm Boyden's programme is just a 3 hour version of Our Tune (for those of us old enough to remember Simon Bates) with no interest to anybody but the person involved in the story, and the we have a 3 hour void with Kat Orman, until James Cannon comes on to finish off what Phil started. The six hour gap between the two is a waste, especially as Malcolm is a good presenter, but he is given awful material to work with.
