ALERT! BBC Radio London 94.9 have axed DJ Ritu's "A World In London"!
For many years, BBC London 94.9FM's Saturday evenings have included a programme which in simple terms might be described as 'a world music show'. Yet it is so much more! From community notice board, to a catalyst and meeting place for music made by all cultures in one of the most multi-cultural cities in the world.

Second Official Response from the BBC
Thank you for responding to my e-mail and for your additional comments and questions regarding the BBC London schedule changes as they affect DJ Ritu's programme.
I'm afraid I can't enter into personal communication with everyone who writes to me and, although I acknowledge the passion of your arguments for world music, I'm afraid my reasons for changing the schedule, as outlined in my first e-mail to you, still stand.
I do hope you will take the opportunity to enjoy the BBC's world music programmes on other services more suited to specialist music.
