BBC axe falls on 6

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - FrontPage -

Af­ter weeks of spec­u­la­tion, the BBC con­firmed this week that their sta­tion 6 Mu­sic is to close next year. The sta­tion is home to shows by the likes of Lauren Laverne, Adam & Joe and mu­si­cian Guy Gar­vey. Lily Allen and David Bowie have al­ready crit­i­cised the de­ci­sion, with Bowie say­ing: “6Music keeps the spirit of broad­cast­ers like John Peel alive. For new artists to lose this sta­tion would be a great shame.”
