As you will have noticed, BBC 6Music has been earmarked for closure by that Strategic Review thing that came out a couple of months ago. Well, there has been plenty of campaigning in the mean time, including several gigs in various places and Adam 'Count Buckules' Buxton challenging (jovially) Director General Mark 'Thommo' Thompson to a fistfight.
Now we've got a video of many great artists pleading to whoever is in charge of this organisation to NOT close the station. On the clip we have:
Bat For Lashes, Kate Nash, Kaiser Chiefs, Little Boots, The Cribs, Lightspeed Champion, British Sea Power, Emmy The Great, Metronomy, The Boxer Rebellion, Eliza Doolittle, James Lavelle, Jeffrey Lewis, The Young Fathers, Broadcast 2000, Envy, Erran Baron Cohen, Fink and non-musicians including Miranda Sawyer (journalist), Ken Livingstone (one time politician) amongst others.
