6 Music

I love 6 Music. For those not in the know[1], it’s one of the BBC’s digital radio stations, available on DAB and via satellite and cable TV in the UK. Not only that, but you can listen online, too. Not only that, but you can catch up on shows you might have missed.

They play a range of music (old and new) that fits in well with my tastes, and they frequently introduce me to things I haven’t heard before, which is always a Good Thing. One of the best features is the Dream Ticket, presented by Janice Long[2]. Janice gets to introduce classic concerts from the BBC’s enormous archive. Just heard U2 in their early days. Wonderful stuff :cheesy:
