Was just looking at the BBC site and saw this comment, wondered if anyone here knows whether the BBC is wrong-doer-ing? Seems like this guy may have a point but I'm not too au fait with BBC's policy...

I have reservations about the BBC doing this. Is it really within the BBC's remit to select bands (which regardless of the rationale behind these choices is still based on arbitrary and subjective opinions) and then plug them across their TV / Radio and online channels? I'd have to ask what precisely does the BBC seek to gain from this? How does it benefit the BBC's viewers and listeners? And, mainly, why does the BBC feel that it has to set the (if you will) "musical agenda" for the coming year? The BBC should stick to reporting the news, not attempting to make it with meaningless guff like this"
