BBC Radio cancels “On the Wire” after 36-year run

The program that brought electronic music, hip-hop and reggae to a larger audience in the last 36 years, “On the Wire”, has been discontinued by BBC Radio.

The program presented by Steve Barker has been cancelled and it seems that even Barker wasn’t aware of it. “For me personally and the ‘On the Wire’ team, no BBC representative has taken the trouble to formally inform us that ‘On the Wire’ is not required, discuss any possible future for the program or even thanked us for running the show without break since 1984”, said Steve Barker.

Fans are really sad about the end of the show that Barker said he knew it was over through a “quick phone call”.
