Rediffusion to close end of this month

Postby pinky » Mon Apr 09, 2012 1:21 pm

Just read from the papers that it will stop broadcasting on 30/4/12 after
63 years here. It has been a good companion to many senior citizens who can only converse in dialects all these years and it has to go...
Many of the listeners are upset and mourn the loss of an icon which has
kept them company for so long...
Wonder if the govt will step in to fund the organization so that it can continue to serve its loyal listeners :please:

I did not even know that they are still around, thought long gone until I read the news this morning.

Used to listen to the night drama when I was a little boy.
