Should ABC RN retire Quiet Space and Sound Quality?

These are preliminary votes, and you can still vote in the poll, but the results seem pretty devastating for the producers and presenters of these programs.

I'm actually a big fan of Quiet Space. I'm not paying taxes for it (I live in Europe) so I'm not sure if that gives me a voice in this.. Nevertheless I would find it rather disappointing if this program would cease to exist.

I'd like to know whether the graphs on this site are live.. they seem to be static images and I'd like to follow the poll's results.

on a sample size of 45 i think we can assume that there is not enough interest either way.

Well, we have some interesting results. I've checked the latest on the poll and it has got to 54 responses, and now it favours retaining both programs. I'll do a second post on it as I've produced a graph based on time showing cumulative totals. Someone thought it was worth stacking the result is what the graph appears to say, but have a look when I put it up and see what you think.
0 #5 Why don't you show the Disagree column wMitzi 2011-11-15 19:47
Why don't you show the Disagree column when it comes to the Quiet Space. Is this poll rigged? I for one am a 69 year old grandmother who loves the show although I am a sound sleeper and prefer to stream it at a civilised hour.
0 #6 Because Mitzi, there wasn't any. Of courGraham Young 2011-11-15 20:23
Because Mitzi, there wasn't any. Of course the poll isn't rigged. I have a reputation, and I earned that reputation by being scrupulously honest. You might be interested in the follow-up column to this one where I analyse responses in terms of time and referring URLs. There was an attempt to rig it, but not by me.
0 #7 I listen to both programs and would see Bengt Nielsen 2011-11-28 13:34
I listen to both programs and would see the loss of either as making my musical landscape a little poorer. In the case of "The Quiet Space" what would they replace it with for its particular time slot. I get up 20 minutes earlier than I have to so I can listen to it on a Monday morning. Why would anybody who doesn't like it even care that its on. And please, for the love of...(insert deity of choice here), what is wrong with "Sound Quality. Tim Richie is a passionate and knowledgeable guy who has taken me in more musical directions than almost any other presenter...

I've only listened to it very occasionally, but was really really happy to find that there are people doing such interesting and quirky things. We need more of that in this over-efficient and boringly materialistic society. Go ABC! and keep up the attempt to cater for the outlier people.

hi..looks like ive found this post a little late. I think Paul from Quiet space would have all the figures he needs to see how many hits his website gets each week...and I'd hazzard a guess its in the thousands. from speaking to some people online, quiet space is listened to all over the world, and there is nothing like it in OZ that i know of. It such a great show, never boring..I for one have writtten to both Paul and the ABC to let them know how much I appreciate the show,for those who agree; get behind the Quiet Space !!
