    Just another example where the BBC is unfit for purpose.

    You can’t make a sweeping statement that the BBC is not fit for purpose because in many cases it is – and I also feel it’s good value thro’ the licence fee. Sky and it’s 25% adverts is costing me around £90 a month. Stick to specifics and your argument becomes stro g.

    Start a campaign to get Richard Spendlove back on air Saturday evenings. We miss you Richard.

    Only found out from yesterday’s Daily Mail(14.10.17) why Richard has been absent,I thought his wife was ill or something. I am speechless,losing one of the best presenters is bad enough,but Radio Cambs has now lost two, unnecessarily(I refer also to Paul Stainton) To coin a phrase, one may be regarded as a misfortune to lose both looks like carelessness!!!!!!

      CWF was the first to report on Richard’s plight and we published the story in his own words … tell as many people as you can to put their names on here – at least we can tell the powers-that-be what the listeners think!

    Richard’s Saturday evening programs where a delight to listen to, his warm friendly manner and common sense are now missing, along with his musical choices. We no longer listen to BBC radio on Saturday evenings. Sorry, but the BBC as broadcaster in general seems to be loosing the plot!

  8. Ivor Pollington says:

    There is no reason for the great many listeners of a certain age and people of principle continue to listen to Radio Cambridgeshire the voice of reason and honesty has been cast aside by the new generation of jobsworths.

    Enthralled and captivated are my thoughts for the radio show which was clearly the best on regional local and worldwide , but due to the inept ability of the Biased Broadcasting Corporation mis-management team, and their ideologies, the nation has lost an absolute legend from the airwaves, but that is what has become of the BBC, so biased to the PC brigade, they are to stupid to Realize how many people tuned in for these shows, and it is now clear proof that the licence fee should be scrapped, we do not get what we pay for , just the DRIVLE the idiots at the top want to brain wash us with. re instate Mr Spendlove.

    There will not be a new Richard i feel the BBC are short sighted Richards stile meant so much to meany this is a day time programs not for late evenings BBC Essex Ray Clark stile of program would fit better BBC must remember the number of older listeners is growing more than we are passing on We are looking for a new station for Saturday night every Night off TV and on BBC Essex

    I don’t bother listening on Saturday nights now after listening to Richard for over 20 years.

    Richard made you feel like you were his special guest rather than just a listener. Although I never called in to air my views, I frequently emailed Richard on a variety of topics during his Saturday programme. He would invariably read my emails out on air adding his own words of wisdom. He was a such a joy to listen to, a radio companion especially for the older generation and for those living alone. What a shame we have lost this irreplaceable gentleman from the airwaves.

    I’ve been wondering what had happened to my Saturday night favourite. I always used to go to bed early especially on a work weekend to listen to him. It was always interesting informative entertaining yet easy listening at that time of night and had been part of my regime for many years.

    I am appalled he has been treated in this manner and ‘knowing’ him as I think I do his principles probably won’t let him return. Shame on the BBC

    What a wonderful caring gentlemen Richard is the elderly people must miss him so much as I do, he made you feel special and at the end of he’s broadcast he would say the nicest goodbye. I thought he had given up because him or he’s wife was ill I am so glad that this is not the case and I thank him for all the years you have made lonely people or unhappy people feel a bit better. I send Richard and he’s family my love and best wishes
