After John Peel died, the only place where you can hear and discover a diverse mix of new and interesting music in the UK is on a digital radio station run by the BBC called '6 music'.
Due to political pressure on the BBC to 'reallocate' £600 million, this iconic station is now going to be axed!
Please help save this gem for everyone!
From the facebook page:
The BBC Trust is about to publish a review into the performance of both 6Music and Radio 2.
There are rumours that the station, which has 620,000 weekly listeners and costs £7 million a year to run, could be closed in a meaningless sacrifice to politicians demanding BBC savings and a limit on the corporation’s digital ambitions.
The Trust could argue that 6’s audience reach doesn’t justify its expense and that its core audience be served in the margins of a tightened-up Radio 2.
This is a group for listeners of this iconic radio station to air their thoughts and demand that it be left on the airwaves, championing new music and cherishing the old.
Leave 6Music alone!
