Music on Radio Wales.

* SIR - As a regular listener to Radio Wales, I am aware of the programmes referred to by editor Steve Austins (Letters, Aug 17).

However, although the Welsh music content of these programmes is welcome, it still forms only a small part of the station's overall music output.

In addition, I would like to see changes to the mainstream weekday and Saturday morning programmes.

The Saturday programme, Money for Nothing, plays golden oldie rock and ballads. There is plenty of top quality home-grown music in the same genres that could be added to this mix, especially if music of the last 25 years is included.

The weekday programme, Jamie and Louise, has an easy listening playlist with a modern feel. Again, there are many Welsh artists whose music would fit into this format quite comfortably.

The overall effect should be that there is enough home-grown music played on all programmes to give Radio Wales a recognisably different sound to all other UK radio stations.

Radio Wales is the flagship English language Welsh radio station, and the nation deserves a better playlist policy in this respect.

So far so good, but still a way to go is my verdict.
