Oh, I forgot to propose a second 24-h-frequency per band offering the
finest of Chinese Crash and Bang with a dedication to foreign services: "be
ye warned that China is not interested in your broadcasting in our
languages especially minority languages like Uighur and Tibetan." Would
that open up much space for a redevelopment of international broadcasting
services. (Dr Hansjoerg Biener 1 September 2021)

So the final CRI programme in German was this morning's repeat programme.
At least I like music. What about a 24-h-frequency per m-band with a World
Service of Chinese Music and a TRT like reel "CRI in Deutsch", "CRI in
italiano" "CRI em português". They could even take the number of language
they serve to yet unknown heights by including more European languages and
even minority languages like Bavarian or Saxonian,
(Dr Hansjoerg Biener 1 September 2021)

Either the remaining core service of German will as of tomorrow be
replaced by music-only, too

And so it happens. Program opening "Hier ist Radio China International"
only followed by music back-to-back, with no spoken word whatsoever. No
announcement "radio service has discontinued" with referral to web
presence, no nothing. Burning up about seven megawatt hours a day for
nothing, joining all the airtime of former broadcasts that went to
music-only already two years ago.

For how many years to they plan to continue this nonsense? Is it bragging
("see, we can afford it!!") or just plain incompetence?
