RADIO LICENSE FEES

I have been hoping that someone better able to express himself would protest against the habit of the broadcasting service of curtailing programmes and yet making no reduction in license fees. One realises the necessity of reducing consumption of electric power, and is prepared to admit that broadcasting "cuts" hurt no one. But why should we still have to pay the full fees? It _ amounts to charging for something and then failing to supply it. We would not complain if there was a corresponding improvement in the quality of the programme. But there is nothing to compensate for loss of listening time. When the Americans ran IZM there must have been a great saving to the national broadcasting service, and thai, was not passed on either. A LISTENER, SOMETIMES.
