It's that time again to talk careers. This time, I'm focusing on the radio industry, asking questions about daily life in the studio, work experience and the best bits of the job. My guest today is Phil Stocker who works at Radio 1 for the Fearne Cotton show.

Once upon a time everyone knew who was No. 1. My mates, my Mum and probably your Mum too - knew if Blur had beaten Oasis, and whether the Spice Girls had managed to get their sixth chart topper in a row. Now that's no longer the case. Unless it's the Christmas No. 1, with its attendant media hoopla, the specifics of who exactly is heading the charts often passes us by.
How should the BBC achieve cuts of 20% across the board? Maybe a cut in executive pay, sacking Chris Moyles or taking fewer taxis would be a start. Instead, they're proposing cutting BBC Introducing - a network of local radio shows playing new music from the area, and feeding into a national Radio 1 show. The Introducing show is the very definition of public service (and something a commercial operator wouldn't touch), and life for musicians outside London will be much tougher without it.
But why is it important that we support a wide range of new music? In my opinion, the biggest challenge facing any artist or musician today is simply getting noticed. The internet has democratised music production and distribution and the barrier to entry is now so low that the web is flooded with millions of tracks and thousands of undiscovered artists. Simultaneously, there has been a global decline in the number of trusted guides or filters with sufficient audience to make any difference and without significant gatekeepers operating at mass-market scale music makers will find it harder and harder to emerge beyond their niche.

Now I'm a pretty happy person, but there are a few things that make me angry. One of these was the sweeping generalisation and negative portrayal of many young people following the recent riots in England. Everyone seemed to be asking why teenagers were revolting. On Monday a gang of teenagers descended on City Hall in London. Some wore hoodies, others were dressed smartly. But they all had one thing in common - they had all come together to talk about their hopes and fears for the future and did so with great passion and integrity.
It's great that our elderly statesmen of rock are taking to the airwaves. But I'd like to see a bit of a shake-up in the way the music we hear on our national stations is chosen. I'm specifically thinking about Radio 1 here.
