The projected switch off of analogue radio for national stations

The switch off of the analogue radio signal for national radio stations projected for 2015 should be scrapped indefinitely.  The public should not be dictated to over this.  I have not heard one good excuse for doing it.  I have six radio sets including the one in my car, all of which work perfectly well and have done so for many years.  They will still be around long after the digital muck is dead and buried.  Anyone who is desperate to listen to digital radio can do so on their PC or Freevew box or via umpteen other methods already. I have heard that portable digital radios do not work properly  especially in cars. This idea nearly cost Ben Bradshaw my vote and I am still very angry with him for introducing it.

Why is this idea important?
