Save BBC 6Music and the Asian Network

So the BBC wants to axe 6music does it?  The only radio station to play alternative music.  The only one without witless presenters yammering away being loud and obnoxious in the mornings.  I listen to 6 music and Radio 4.  That's it.  There is nothing else like 6music, and if you agree please go sign the petition here.

The petition is also for the Asian Network.  I have never listened to this channel but I am pretty sure there's few outlets for stuff like the Asian Network, and without it we'd have a pretty whitewashed media.  So if you're against the closure of this station, please also sign the petition.

If the BBC want to save money, apart from the obvious step of cutting the wages of their grossly-overpaid "stars",they ought to shut down BBC3. Apart from Being Human it's a complete waste of space.

In a bizarre twist, the government might end up interceding and forcing the BBC to keep the stations open as part of the public service mandate.
