The Minister of  State for Digital, Culture, Media and SportMatthew Hancock, announced today that the government will be introducing shock new broadcasting legislation that will have a major impact on radio stations like Progzilla Radio.

Under the legislation, broadcasters of “popular” music will only be allowed to broadcast songs up to 3 minutes 30 seconds in length or radio edits of up to that length. Hancock stated on the BBC’s Andrew Marr Show this morning that this legislation was necessary to help consumers differentiate between pop and classical music and in response to many pop music fans listening to radio who found that songs longer than the popular single length to be “tedious and boring”.

Being UK based Progzilla Radio will have to comply with these need regulations and Cliff and the team are currently working on radio edits of Genesis and Pink Floyd tracks as we speak before starting work on the rest of the station’s music library.

So please bear with us as we undertake this necessary work and appreciate your support at this trying time.
