There used to be a great round-table discussion about radio content
organised by the EBU and Spanish National Radio RNE. It was held
every two years in Torremolinos. The venue in the Malaga conference
centre was great because the room was like a football stadium. It
worked because everyone could see each other which is essential if
you want to get people talking whose native language is not
English. I went to one of the events in 1999 and got a glimpse of
what people where thinking about the future of radio 11 years ago.
I think it was a pity they were discontinued. Perhaps that's
because the venues they chose later were more like a classroom. So
who got it right and who was well off the mark? Listen back to this
Media Network spring safari and let me know what you think. If you
are interested in more great photos of Torremolinos as it is today,
