As we write about music quite a bit (and kindly postmen
bring us piles of jiffy bag-packed CDs everyday), we don’t get to listen to the
radio that often. And when we do, it’s increasingly dominated by X Factor alumni.
Perhaps we shouldn’t be surprised then that one of the final
bastions of great radio is now under threat.
We are of course referring to BBC 6Music and, like the rest
of the music industry, we’ve been hit by the sudden Joni Mitchell-esque
realisation that you don’t know what you’ve got till it’s gone.
For our part, while we’re aware there’s a recession on, TG
would much rather they cut the talent shows than the talent platforms.
