I don't know how many of our number listen to 6 music, of course the big news is that it's now facing the axe. I've been sent a petition which I've signed. Link here for anyone else who would like to sign it: http://38degrees.org.uk/page/s/bbccuts#petition
Others here: http://www.petition.fm/petitions/6musicasiannet/1000/

I've signed because I think Mark Thompson has one hell of a nerve using 6 Music as a scapegoat for pointless expenses on buildings.

If he wanted to pay for something building he could have put towards my mum's bathroom - still waiting for necessary repairs at the time of writing.

David Quantick wrote a good piece in the Mirror wishing that BBC-3 would be axed instead, due to the amount of garbage that's on there.

Now it's that time of the year when the run-up to Eurovision happens, I wish they'd cancel that and save 6 Music, in view of all the times the Critical List was taken off for this annual feast of racism.

Please advise the relevance of the BBC Trust post the next general election and a possible new administration in power.

Thank you Lord Evan Elpus for adding Mark Thompson's face to the Devil Kick game! I trust you saw the idiot in the Channel 4 news studio when Adam buxton threatened to punch him via video link up!

No problem. I can't remember which thread I put it on before, so here it is again, if anyone feels agrieved about 6 music or even the proposals for R2 & the BBC website: http://www.pictogame.com/en/play/game/RWfcZ79KRr0S_devil-kick-2 I can't seem to get him past 114,976 at present!

There was a demonstration outside broadcasting house last Saturday. Footage of it can be seen here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6iQjnnlQuWw
Also worth hearing are Gideon Coe's & Tom Robinson's contributions (see menu on the right)
Here's another one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6QrK61dnuS4
