Demise Of Dutch FM Locals

Post by John Faulkner, Skegness » 14 Apr 2018 11:59

I hope this is not a sign of things to come, but I suspect that it is.

I have been scanning the top of FM, looking for Dutch local stations. In particular, I was looking for my regular Scheldemond FM from Oostburg on 107.5. I couldn't hear it, but it didn't take long before I realised why. I noticed that FM List has marked the station as "CLOSED". This is very sad. Also because I see that many other Dutch (Holland AND Belgium) locals have also closed.

I suspect this is a sign of the times. Perhaps a lack of funds to run them? An ongoing trend here too, sadly. Or am I wrong? If so, which other countries are suffering?
