No one gets a prize

If you see a few more radio producers on the ski slopes this February, it's 'cos there's still no sign of a replacement for the Radio-Academy-Awards-formerly-branded-Sony.

February was the month when network and local producers went in to hyperdrive to compile entries for the categories that required portfolios rather than single programmes. It used to terrify me to think of the person-hours involved.  Perhaps, if the awards come back, we could make the compilations in late November/December, and then at least they could be sensibly used on air, in the thin evenings of the festive schedules...
