After two years of making programmes dealing with issues concerning people in the North East, bringing in 'experts' and representatives from many local organisations, making the podcasts for all the programmes available online and writing this blog, we have had not one single response from a listener. There is a huge amount of work involved in keeping this programme on air and seeking out new issues on which to focus and it has been a somewhat thankless task. Last year we began recording the programmes in a public setting at Crisis Skylight cafe, hoping that this would increase our audience and perhaps encourage more feedback and possibly also offers of support and assistance. All to no avail.
We have decided therefore to suspend the project for the forseeable future. If you wish to comment or suggest other ways to do this, to volunteer to help on the project or otherwise offer some feedback, please post a comment here on the blog or write to us at noexcuseradio [at] gmail.com
