It was racist attitudes by govt. in the 70's and 80's that led to London's pirate problem, they

stonewalled perfectly reasonable proposals and refused to licence
community radio stations that
would cater for non-whites,

They refused perfectly reasonable proposals by many different groups.
You seem to be saying that non-whites are a special case that should
have special treatment. This is a common attitude and is responsible for
much of the indigenous population's resentment.

they always meowed about "no spare frequencies" and the dinosaur IBA
regime only allowed two commercial stations for the whole of London
(Capital and LBC), both of
which only served the white audience.

Capital and LBC only served the white audience! Are you mad?
So non-whites can only listen to non-white stations? They don't
integrate in the slightest? They are incapable of appreciating the music
of western Europe? What a disgusting racist you must be to think that.
Radio apartheid!

They refused to play Reggae for a start, as did the BBC, despite the huge popularity of this music, they don't want to admit that Jamaica, a non-white country, produces the world's best popular music.

Raggae was never that popular. It was a niche thing. After all it's very
repetitive.

As for the broadcasters refusing to play black music, how do you square
that with the various jazz and blues programmes?

So Jamaica produces the world's best pop music? Better than the Beatles,
the Stones, the Who, the Beachboys, Bob Dylan, Elvis? I really don't
think so. Not unless you are racially prejudiced.

Well, LBC wasn't there to play music was it ? However, Capital and
shock horror BBC Radio London championed soul and jazz funk music
extensively with presenters such as Greg Edwards, Robbie Vincent, and
Mike Allen.

And Reggae was eventually covered by David Rodigan on Capital, (and he's
still doing it to this day on Radio 2).

And let's be honest, Reggae is really the primitive music of that
section of humanity with retarded musical tastes and a prejudice towards
negro 'culture'. I doubt very much that the musically sophisticated
people in Jamaica listen to it.
