save 6 music

words: molly

Considering how much I love BBC 6 Music, it’s shameful I haven’t yet written about it. Along with a legion of like-minded fans I’ve been badgering the BBC not to prematurely curtail its existence – see how you can, here. The station is a keeper; exposing listeners to new music, oldies that really are golden, a diverse range of presenters, live sessions, documentaries, music news (by our friend Jo Youle) and much more goodness. As I write, Lauren Laverne is playing The XX, a minute ago it was Jimmy Hendrix and before that LCD Soundsystem. Next, who knows? That’s the beauty. If you haven’t yet listened, tune in and ramp up the figures. You’ll get hooked.
