Conclusion

Less repeats topped the wishlist for 102.5, it is known that repeats are done to keep royalty costs down but a wider playlist will bring back listeners and listeners to the ads that businesses pay to be on there.

2QN listeners want the classics from the 1960’s to the 1980’s with a little surprise from more recent times thrown in, this would keep 102.5 and 2QN from being the same and allow for choice.

Confidence is not high for the Air Freight Hub, many think the airport will get something different in the end but there is the thought Council’s insistence will see things through even if people question the need for cargo planes to scream in and that Melbourne is a short distance of time away by air.

As for the Ethanol Plant, the majority of voters think that it won’t happen but they will talk about it forever just like the third Bill & Ted movie we’ve been waiting almost 30 years for, other often talked about but never happening examples in the world are the movies Akira and Austin Powers 4 and the computer game Commander Keen:¬†The Universe Is Toast!
