Co-op bin playing unsigned music and return to charts after employees complain

Co-op bin playing unsigned music and return to charts after employees complain

Since complaints about the Co-op's new unsigned music radio came from their employees, the chain has been quick to drop the idea and return to predominantly playing chart music.

A statement from the store is as follows: "We recently piloted a new in-store radio service to showcase and show support for unsigned music acts. We did this because the initiative aligns well with The Co-operative Group’s new purpose of a championing initiatives which support our customers and their local communities. We have, however, had some negative feedback from colleagues. We’ve listened carefully and have acted to reinstate well known acts while retaining slots on our programming for unsigned musicians to have their songs heard."

The Co-operative Group also intend to support unsigned music acts by launching a new initiative with the National Union of Students shortly.
