    To be honest, now that they canned Bruce Dickinson's Rock Show and lost the only decent show on their station. They can close 6 Music for all I care as the rest of their line up is pure toss to say the least. Only thing decent I have seen on there in months is the four parter Lee Perry show.

    Kind of agree - I'd be keen to lobby for Bruce's show to come back - even if it didn't have him at the helm - any metal gods "resting" at the moment? If there is a campaign going to bring back the Rock Show, where do I sign up?

    I truly think that the BBC must have something akin to the old Tommy Vance or Alan Freeman "rock" shows* - otherwise the rock end of the music market isn't being covered, (yes, I know there's Kerrang radio and Planet Rock - but the latter is "classics" only, and the former has degenerated into a Radio1-lite - plays way too much indie to be regarded with anything other than contempt in my book)
    (* yes, I know referring to the Vance/Freeman shows makes me sound old - but I don't care!)

    Haven't heard the show that replaced Bruce's Rock Show - but when they were bigging it up as a "wide coverage of music" I figured that it's the usual Radio 1 fare. Still at least there's still Rock Radio, although unfortunately I'm in a very poor signal area for that (it's basically DAB only for me, because the local commercial radio 'casts on the 96.3 FM band that RR use alongside DAB).

    Probably get me well and truly flamed, but I still listen to the Huey Morgan show on 6Music - I like FLC and at least Huey plays a wide selection of music.

    Wow, they kept this one quiet after all the fuss that kicked off when they said they were going to close it. I'm glad it got saved though, it's the only BBC station I can listen to these days that isn't Radio 4
