Why the BBC should save 6Music...

... in a very well written article by the very first 6Music DJ Phill Jupitus.

6Music is exactly the sort of (relatively) cheap broadcasting that the BBC should be investing in, providing a public service by promoting a range of unknown and upcoming artistic talent.  As opposed to the safe-from-the-cull Radio 1, who simply play whatever the record companies are pushing on them.

As Jupitus points out, 6Music DJs get a generous three free plays an hour outside of the station playlist. 

Let's not succumb to the bleatings of the BBC's media rivals, eh?  Or we'll all be listening to Cheryl Cole.  And what a boring life that would be.
