So it seems I’m far from the only one ranting about BBC 6music’s potential closure.
Hardly unexpected, but I’m still delighted.
It didn’t take long for the campaign site www.love6music.com and its associated petition to come into being.
It’s well put together and maturely written and, bless them, has even linked this site on its blogs page.
Last time I looked, the petition had more than 15,000 signatures – certainly a good start.
The Twitter hashtag #save6music is being used repeatedly. Chris Addison, Lauren Laverne, Phill Jupitus and Jon Holmes are among the BBC-associated ‘celebs’ lending their support to action on 6music, with Ms Laverne being a DJ on the station.
The smarter newspapers are generating plenty of copy on the issue and even Ed Vaizey seems to have lent his support to the campaign.
We should probably write off that final point as political opportunism, but this is all encouraging stuff.
So go sign the petition. On Twitter? Get the twibbon and use the hashtag. Write to your local MP. Complain to the BBC. Blog about it. Spray paint ‘Save 6music’ on your dog.
But if you remotely care about music in any way, shape or form, ferrgawdssake do something!!
