You can listen to BBC radio for free. The license fee is for television. No television = no license fee.

Hardly, BBC spend about 650m a year on radio. License fee is for TV, radio and on-line services.

I'm always amused by suggestions that the BBC is politically biased. The BBC is an organisation that employs 1000's of people, and it goes without saying that many of those will hold some political bias, but the organisation itself?

Anyone who listens to Feedback on Radio 4 will have noted the amount of left leaning listeners complaining about the BBC being too right-wing, and the amount of right leaning listeners complaining about the BBC being too left-wing, and how they balance each other quite equally in number.

It used to be a balanced opinion from that organisation.
That makes a change Rhoney usually only discusses subjects below the belt

At least you can tell what Rony is saying. Which is more than can be said for Toby Fister.

I regularly listen to Radio Sheffield, it is so bad its worth it just for the comedy value, one of my favourites is Everard Davy, he can make any news bulletin sound like a party political broadcast on behalf of the Labour Party.

Perhaps you misunderstood my point. My point was that if you don't have a television, you don't have to pay for a TV license. Since there is no such thing as a radio license, if you don't have a TV license you can listen to BBC radio for free.

Obviously the TV license fee goes towards paying for all BBC services, including TV and Radio.

Radio Sheffield is brilliant until you get a certain presenter who runs with the fox and hunts with the hounds.

For the first time ever I turned it off this morning and switched to radio 4.
It was though my hearing had suddenly improved after listening to the dross that Toby was turning out .
His joke about the Fox and Piecost is just about the worstist joke ever in the history of live Radio.
Or was that yesterday or the d------------

Nearly dropped off my chair this morning.
Rony interviewed a girl that has lost half her body weight, turned out to be one of my best mates. She's been picked to be one of the poster girls for the "This Girl Can" campaign run by SIV, her poster is all over Ponds Forge and on some buses.
Well done Michelle.
