Got your Radio NZ Card?
Here’s a question you might care to contemplate: If the Save Radio New Zealand Facebook group can attract 10,639 members in less time it takes for a blogger to get back from holiday, then why can’t those 10,639 obviously eager punters pick up the $31,816,000 tab for the service themselves, instead of putting their hands in other people’s pockets to pay for their pleasure.
If a station like bFM can offer a bCard (complete with great deals) to get listeners to help pay for their enthusiasm, then why can’t the mandarins of Radio NZ manage to get something similar off the ground?
I bet if they were NZ-Card holders those 10,000 punters would soon be demanding a little cost cutting of their own. Why should other people be forced to paying for the listening pleasure of these 10,639, and for the comfort of the sundry RadioNZ-employed bureaucrats they insist we support?
