Save BBC 6Music (and five reasons why I hate the BBC)

8 07 2009

Most of the time I moan about the Beeb for the following reasons

1 They develop hugely expensive websites which they promote across all their media (radio, TV etc) yet they are very sparing with their links and often don’t credit other media sources when they, ahem, pinch stories

2 They pay stupid sums of money for presenters who really aren’t worth the cash

3 Richard Bacon on Five Live – he makes me cringe

4 Mark Thompson is the smuggest man on the planet – Look at this picture http://paidcontent.co.uk/article/419-bbc-director-general-bbc-can-stimulate-online-economy-not-kill-it/ weep at his words

5 Richard Bacon again

However there are bits of the Beeb I would probably auction off limbs to keep – namely five live’s footy coverage, BBC4’s arts docs and good old BBC Radio 6Music.

Now it appears the Beeb is pondering a rethink of 6Music and has set up a questionnaire to canvas what punters think. So please if you treasure wonderful stuff like Poppy and The Jezebels plus all the weird stuff Stuart Maconie plays and Steve Lamacq’s wonderful forays into 80s and 90s indie pop fill it in now – you can get it here – https://consultations.external.bbc.co.uk/departments/bbc/bbc-radio-2-and-bbc-6-music/consultation

PopJunkie TV has a longer piece on 6Music (and Radio 2 which is also under the spotlight, here – http://popjunkietv.com/2009/07/08/pop-junkie-says-dont-let-the-bbc-change-radio-2-or-6music/
