For the first time in about 10 years, Gospel music will have absolutely no presence on mainstream commercial radio in London – a direct result of the recent re-branding of Choice FM to Capital Extra… Gospel music is still represented on the BBC via Radio 2.
What does that mean for the Gospel? Was this inevitable? How should we respond? Is there a conspiracy against ‘Black’ music?
And with Internet streaming, DAB radio broadcasting and podcasting all becoming seriously viable alternatives, does it really matter..?
