    I’d like to applaud Radio Youthology for their successful 24-hour broadcast. They managed to feature music and discussions on various locked up artists particularly those based in the Middle East where music is strictly condemned. I hope their efforts in raising awareness on music freedom will be deeply appreciated across the UK.
