Keep Country Music on BBC Radio Norfolk
#1I feel very strongly that this is very important, Country music is so popular in Norfolk as are the other specialist shows. BBC Local Radio should serve content suited to local needs.
Mervyn Futter (King's Lynn, 2020-07-27)
#2I love country and this is just not on
Peter Moore (Norwic, 2020-07-27)
#3I’m signing because, I’ve grown up listening to Rodeo Norfolk on a Saturday morning. These two shows are the only shows with have on the radio that are completely country music. We need to keep them.
Alysha Childs (Kings lynn, 2020-07-27)
#5This programme has been running successfully for 38 years and plays a big part in getting new music out not only to Norfolk where it has always been very popular but all over the world via the web where the listenership is ever increasing - why try to fix something that isn’t broken??!!
Dave Sheriff (Telford, 2020-07-27)
#11I'm signing because it will be a big loss to country music
Dianne Thacker (Stevenage, 2020-07-27)
#12Rodeo Norfolk is an important programme for lovers of Country Music and performs a very VALUABLE local service in promoting live music in Norfolk and the UK. Musicians who are self employed rely on this programme make sure their concerts are know about, and promoters of Festivals rely on this too. The contribution these events contribute to the local community is enormous. Why are we being deprived of a perfectly good programme that has been on air for 38 years?
Ralph Marshall (Swaffham, 2020-07-27)
#14Love to hear country music on our BBC Radio Norfolk. Not just the music but all the info that comes with it! It’s a great programme would hate to lose it!

#22We need this more than ever now. No venues to see live music . Don’t take away Country Music from East Anglia.
A lot of people are housebound they look forward to the Country Radio programmes on Saturdays and Sundays. !!!
Eileen Bloy (Norwich , 2020-07-27)
#25I listened each online. There can never be enough Country music on the radio. The BBC should be catering for this large and diverse countrywide group of listeners who found this programme connected a lot of people to each other. Yet again the BBC is not listening to licence payers.
Rob Davis (Rotherham, 2020-07-27)
#27Don't want show axed!!
Shirley Bailey (Attleborough, 2020-07-27)
#29I believe that the country music show...(Rodeo Norfolk) should be kept . Thousands listen and enjoy country music and it keeps everyone in touch with shows and festivals...
Teresa Eyres (Norwich, 2020-07-27)
#30The bosses at the BBC need to listen too what it listeners want to hear . This show has a huge listenership and again it’s Country & Irish music that’s hit yet again
Graham Ringer (Norwich , 2020-07-27)
#31Please don't axe country music it's the best music ever
Joyce Whitton (Doddington Cambridgeshire , 2020-07-27)
#34Iv grown up listening to Country music on a Saturday morning since I was 6! It’s part of my weekend. Absolutely disgusting that the listens were not asked about this! I pay my licence!
Leona Clarke (Swaffham , 2020-07-27)
#35I pay for the BBC.
Pat Winn (Kings Lynn, 2020-07-27)
#39I pay my licence and expect to get something for my money. This is a well loved show and needs to be kept going
Heather Howes (Norwich , 2020-07-27)
#40Rodeo Norfolk in particular was very important to the Country Music Scene for 38yrs. Roy Waller & Keith Greentree very well respected members of the scene & keeping Country Music alive in Norfolk for the people who support BBC Radio Norfolk!
A Mowbray (Huddersfield, 2020-07-27)
#41A balance of local interest is what Local radio is for, supporting our local musicians, Country music clubs, Festivals & jobs & Rodeo Norfolk is a major contributor to this by promoting these events much more than other shows than Radio Norfolk broadcasts can
Trevor Allen (Kings Lynn, 2020-07-27)
#42Here in Essex there is not a country music show on radio unless you have freeview internet or Alexa
Elsie Hardiman (gt leighs, 2020-07-27)

#48I run a Country music club
Colin Wilson (Southend on Sea , 2020-07-27)
#49Country Music is a very popular genre with very little coverage, what programmes there are should be maintained.
James Mantz (Northampton, 2020-07-27)
#50I don’t think they should take it off as it’s a very popular program here in Norfolk
Gloria Cantwell (Norwich, 2020-07-27)
#51In my opinion country music does not get enough air time in the UK. The artists, musicians and all those working behind the scenes need, like everyone else at present all the help they can get to promote the genre and to survive.
SO PLEASE, PLEASE REINSTATE THE RODEO NORFOLK SHOW AND CONFIRM THAT THE FUTURE IS SAFE FOR THE THREE COUNTIES “THE BIG COUNTRY SHOW”.
Jackie Shaw (Sidcup , 2020-07-27)
#54I have been e regular listener for many years and live on my own so its a comfort to be able to listen to my favourite music on a saturday morning
William Chewter (BRAINTREE, 2020-07-27)
#55Top programme don't want to lose it.
Geoff Byford (Bury St Edmunds, 2020-07-27)
#60This show is the ONLY thing I listen to or watch on the BBC
This goes then what’s the point of paying my licence fee anymore?
I am very upset you can push aside something so many people enjoy and look forward to. I hope you reconsider your bad decision and do something right for once for your license payers!
Billy King (Dereham , 2020-07-27)
#61A supporter of all country music and vehicles that give informed information to the public. And I know this program is very popular and would be missed by many people
Mike Stewart (Norwich, 2020-07-27)
#62I think it’s a disgrace axing such a popular country music show , rural Norfolk needs it !!!!
Jackie Marshall (Swaffham , 2020-07-27)
#65Country music has a good following in the Radio Norfolk area .
Stephen Andrews (Hunstanton, 2020-07-27)
#67I've listened to rodeo Norfolk all my life Saturdays just would not be the same, and our local bands need this show to be recognised, to get the support they need
Janet Bloomfield (Wells next the sea, 2020-07-27)
#73country music fan
john prendergast (kings lynn, 2020-07-27)
#74I've been involved with the Country music scene for the last 40 plus years, and having listened to the late Roy Waller and then Keith Greentree for most of the 38 years that Rodeo has been on air, I feel EVERYONE will miss out! Club organisers and Artistes will have limited publicity to forthcoming events,...so they will suffer...also what about all the people who are unable to attend CM gigs? For most of us Country Music is a "way of life" so come on BBC lets have a U TURN on your decision.
Jenny Cole (Norwich, 2020-07-27)
#75I believe local radio should broadcast what local people want and should show musical diversity not the generic pop the national stations think we want to listen too.
Phil Hannant (Kings lynn, 2020-07-27)
#79At this time in COVID when people can’t go to dances and country music clubs, we need this radio station more than ever.Keep it country!
Sandra Williams (Norwich, 2020-07-27)
#81This is so important to this industry.
Julie Waldie (BILLERICAY, 2020-07-27)
#82This show is one of the very few Country Music shows on the BBC in fact on radio!
Russell Kemp (Chelmsford , 2020-07-27)
#83The BBC is cutting far to many very popular programs both on the radio and TV, it needs to stop. If they make us carry on paying the licence fee then they need to listen to what the people actually want to listen to and watch.
Juliette Banwell (King's Lynn, 2020-07-27)
#84We so enjoy the show
Sandra Hall (Brandon, 2020-07-27)
#85I am signing because Keith has been one of the few BBC presenters that keeps sharing amazing country/Americana/Folk music to his listeners that isnt always corporate dictated. Always introduced to great talented in the UK
Sherrene Roxanne Wells (roanoke, 2020-07-27)
#88I am a regular listener to this programme and it brings enjoyment to all our family. I understand the cut is to allow more football. I would point out that Country music is very under represented in the media, although it has a huge audience of dedicated fans, who arguably, on a normal weekly basis, attend more live performances than any other genre. This programme has over the years kepr the fans, many who are elderly and infirm, in touch with local artistes and events. Football is already over represented in the media and it would be a great shame if this were to displace such and established and popular programme.
John Bloxham (Stevenage, 2020-07-27)
#89This programme has been hugely successful over many years and there is no reason to discontinue it. Country music is extremely popular in this area.
a baxter (Corby, 2020-07-27)
#91To keep rodeo Norfolk show going and stop the cuts.
Andrew Wood (Newton Abbot, 2020-07-27)
#93There is not enough country music aired now and too much modern music already. Plus Rodeo Norfolk catered for the clubs with the excellent gig guide
Keith Bradley (Great Yarmouth , 2020-07-27)
#95I have listened to rodeo Norfolk from when Roy Waller did it right through to Keith it is part of my Saturdays please bring it back

Mary Worman (King’s Lynn, 2020-07-27)
#104We need to 'Keep it Country' on local radio and the large listening fan base is more than ample proof that the BBC should and must re-consider its decision.
Richard Hooke (Kings Lynn, 2020-07-27)
#106We need to keep this service running with their help over the years we would not know what's happening on the country scene

#124It's a fantastic show and a great presenter. There should be a range of music on local radio.
Heidi Parker (Colkirk , 2020-07-27)
#127Rodeo Norfolk has been part of my life for as long as I remember,being a entertainer on the country scene we need this to promote country music and the venues who host country music evenings,we need to advertise the gigs if not sadly country music will fizzle out, and that would be devastating.Please keep Rodeo Norfolk where it belongs,on our local radio station and in our hearts,thank you xx

#161Life without Country Music is like lungs without air. We need country music to enrich our lives. I have listened to Rodeo Norfolk from day one with Roy Waller getting on for 40yrs and every Sunday is a must. There are so many other programmes that could be culled far less interesting. Please reinstate our beloved Country Music on Radio Norfolk every Saturday & Sunday and make many thousands of people happy.

#177I Love Country Music and Keith Greentree is my choice to present it. The local Country Music scene needs support and to have all the information about the artistes and when and where they are performing. The venues need support to survive. Why change a format that has been successful for 38 years.
