A FRESH START

DRUM - - Ed's Note -

The ar­ti­cle “Chang­ing gears” (22 Au­gust) ex­plains why Metro FM sus­pended DJ Fresh.

With­out con­don­ing foul lan­guage on air, I strongly feel that DJ Fresh’s case was a small mat­ter that was blown out of proportion.

As a ma­jor ra­dio station with a large fol­low­ing, Metro FM should have re­solved the mat­ter quickly and with­out a big fuss.

That DJ Fresh moved so swiftly to land another broad­cast­ing job at 947 while Metro FM was still pro­cras­ti­nat­ing is proof that you can’t keep a good man down.

It’s ob­vi­ous that when a pop­u­lar ra­dio personalit­y joins a ra­dio station, he brings his lis­ten­ers too.

We know that ra­dio sta­tions have codes of con­duct but they must con­sider the lis­ten­ers when dis­ci­plin­ing the pre­sen­ters.

Way to go DJ Fresh. Keep on in­spir­ing the aspir­ing young en­ter­tain­ers. MJ KUBU, EMAIL
