    6 Music could be saved

    I see the BBC underestimated the strength of feeling about 6 Music: BBC News - BBC Trust open to 6 Music 'rethink'
    I know many of you don't have DAB, but trust me when I say it is proberbly one of the best stations around. It is the only one that plays 'new' music from artists trying to break through that are not pop related, and it employs DJs who actually know a thing or two about music, and don't waffle rubbish to boost their egos. 6 Music is a great example of what the BBC should be doing rather than what they are doing with their mainstream stations.
    I hope it all works out well for them

    Id vote for that! Radio1 has been utter tosh since around 2000. Whenever i put it on all they seem to be playing is the crazy frog, or atleast that what it sounds like to me. Half the time i think its just one of the silly jingles but it turns out to be a real song!!!

    You've not listened to Scott Mills or Chris Moyles then, or Greg James for that matter. All brilliant shows.

    Oh dear. Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear. I really suggest you listen to some 'real' DJs on a decent station and not tuning in to the broadcasting equivelent of 'Just 17' magazine.

    radio 6 music is the only station i have heard that plays decent music - mixture of up and coming and classic good old stuff.
    BBC website is the best out there and a great worldwide advert for the UK and values we stand for.
    So they are cutting the 2 parts of the BBC I like most - don't watch much telly.
    Thats my tuppence worth!

    No DAB - wondered why I hadn't heard of this station when it was on the news this morning! Shame, as it sounds more like my kind of thing than the dross that is R1 & R2.

    It's quite sad that I find more music I like by going on the net after having heard it used as backing on a TV show than by listening to the radio; but even that's less frequent now that the music companies are charging way too m7ch for all that free publicity .

    The BBC should try out new things, its same old same old. I only watch BBC now for Being Human, Survivors, Doctor Who, Torchwood (which they killed!!) and err the odd TV Show other than that FIVEUSA is the thing to watch, regarding the Radio... I don't listen to it at all! and If I did it'd be something like BBC Wales so I don't understand all the news updates!!!

    I used to listen to Radio1 and Galaxy for 8-12 hours every single weekday for 5 years (not through choice). I worked rotating shifts so i think its fair to say i have listened to as much radio1 as anyone, at all times of the day. So yes i have heard their shows.

    If I wanted to listen to dull presenters all day, I'd tune in to Radio 2 or some other station equally as dry. The difference with the people mentioned is that they're fun. They don't sit around talking about politics and other news which you hear every hour anyway or how much the price of soup has gone up in Asda.
