Stunned radio listeners in Petersfield yesterday
Plans to close Petersfield's radio station and replace it with an equally bad one from Basingstoke have stunned local radio listeners and normal people.
Delta Radio, whose slogan is "It May Be Crap, But It's Local Crap", has built a loyal following for playing the same 47 songs in a different order every day, its popular competition "the lost will-to-live" and its pre-recorded bulletins of the latest breaking news.
In an emotional message to listeners, DJ Mike Fader said: "It's terribly sad that Delta is closing, and we'll find out exactly how sad after this..."
There then followed six minutes of advertisements for carpet shops near Alton.
