We published a consultation in January 2015 on whether the way that the selection of music played by local analogue commercial radio stations is regulated is still appropriate, and asked for views on three options.
We confirm our proposal to allow certain synonymous descriptions to be simplified in to 'mainstream popular music' without the need to consider any such changes in accordance with the statutory Format change process. We also provide guidance on how specialist music descriptions could be similarly simplified. It would be for the licensees concerned to ask for the music descriptions in their licences to be simplified in these ways, should they wish to do so.
