Richard Spendlove MBE - 8-11 or 9-1

This is a petition to re-extend the Richard Spendlove show; Saturday nights on BBC Local Radio once again. Proposed times are 20:00 until 23:00, or 21:00 until 01:00. We the people would request, once this petition has been filled, that the BBC Local Radio authorities take note of our wishes and heed this petition. Richard Spendlove is perhaps the best radio broadcaster on the airwaves of a Saturday evening. His diverse chat and music program touches the hearts of many; and provides a very personal touch to those who listen alone. His voice has become so familiar that having him on for only two hours now is unacceptable to the local listeners. Please sign this petition; and give your support. Many thanks.



  • Mrs. Frances Chewter I would prefer 20:00 until 23:00. If he

    was on later, I would miss my chance to kiss the radio when he signs off.

  • Gill Chaplin I would dearly love Richard to have longer on the radio on Saturday nights.

  • Sybil Steam Engine I listen to Richard every Saturday. He was a great comfort when I was in hospital after my stroke, and have been listening to him for years. Used to listen to Keith Skews, cardboard shoes, in the week, and Richard at the weekends. Shame both have had their shows cut back.

    Best regards Mrs Sybil Rivett
