BBC 6 Music to be closed

I'm dismayed and disgusted to hear that BBC6 Music is to be closed.

Radio 1 just plays kiddie music these days, since Peel died and Lamacq moved on it's not been worth listening to, Radio 2 is just too conservative, BBC Radio Newcastle plays nothing but oldies, therefore BBC 6 Music became my station of choice.

To close it will be devastating for the music industry. It's the station that introduces and supports many excellent new bands that progress to major commercial success e.g. Florence and the Machine, but just as importantly it gives exposure to new artists that make innovative music like the excellent Emily Portman whose murder ballads session was very enjoyable on the latest Tom Robinson show.

The station epitomises what public service broadcasting should be all about.

Mark Thompson hang your head in shame.
