BBC Angers Fans Of The Idea Of 6 Music

THE closure of the BBC's 6 Music has enraged thousands of people who insist it is the sort of thing they would probably have liked if they had ever got round to listening to it.

'Turn that shit off, it's Crime Scene: Navy Crime'

Would-be fans are now urging the corporation to grant a reprieve to the digital station, which probably featured lots of new bands or something.

Potential listener Tom Logan said: "It was a fantastic breeding ground for exciting new talent, according to this article I just read on the Guardian website.

"Correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm picturing lots of acoustic sessions, eclectic playlists and lively banter with the spirit of John Peel via a psychic gypsy crone?"

He added: "If the BBC save it I'll definitely make a point of trying to have a listen. Possibly on Wednesdays depending on when I get home from work, though to be honest I'll probably watch Crime Scene: Navy Crime on my Sky+ box.

"Nevertheless, I feel passionately that it was an unquestionable force for good in the universe. Like one of those baby dolphins."

Emma Bradford, from Swindon, had been interested in possibly listening to 6 Music since hearing it mentioned on Radio 4 yesterday.

She said: "Apparently they had a show with those quirky comedians I quite liked. I want to say 'Brian and Terry'…

"Anyway, it's perfectly obvious that my lack of interest in niche programming is entirely the fault of Rupert Murdoch and his 4000 channels of crap including that dreadful Sky Arts which is actually not that bad and is probably what BBC2 should have been doing all along."

Meanwhile Conservative culture spokesman Ed Vaizey admitted he had made a terrible mistake and was switching his support to the closure threatened BBC Asian Network after realising that audience was much more likely to vote Tory than the Glastonbury-loving tosspots who listen to Radio 6.
