MORE PAKISTANI MUSIC ON BBC ASIAN NETWORK sign now

24/7/08
Dear Petitioner.

According to the BBC Asian Networks service licence, the music played [on it] should include a broad range of South Asian-influenced music, with a particular emphasis on new and live music and British Asian artists.

Eastern Eye highlighted the lack of Pakistani and British Pakistani artists on the radio station's playlist last year. It assessed a list of the BBC Asian Network's last 22 playlists to the week ending October 28 (2007), which showed that only about five per cent of songs on them were by artists of Pakistani descent. For the week beginning July 21, 2008 (Mon), the percentage of tracks by such artists of Pakistani descent on the BBC Asian Network playlist - which is published online by the corporation - was less than two per cent.

The station's service budget for 2008 is 8.7million GB pounds.

Would you like to hear more music by artists of Pakistani descent on the BBC Asian Network in future?
