Save m2

m2, the midnight to dawn music "channel within a channel" on TV2 will come to an end on Saturday March 8th according to TVNZ.

You really have to wonder what is going on. The Government has stated a commitment to NZ music and have backed it up with a 'voluntary' local music quota for commercial radio. TVNZ is required to "support and promote the talents and creative resources of New Zealanders".

Cancelling m2 is not supporting NZ music! Don't stand for it. TVNZ is our station, it should reflect our needs. We here at amplifier have had it with home decorating programmes.

In the words of Glen Sowry the spokesperson for TV2 "the public will tell us what we want", well let's tell them.
