As someone who likes to wake up with Alice Cooper and a bit of Zep and a touch of Rush, rather than the honeyed self-importance of John Humphreys, the news that my favourite radio station Planet Rock is to close comes as a bit of blow.
I also can’t help but notice that it has a bigger audience than the BBC’s Six Music. But, owing to the uniquely-funded… yes, you know how it goes. Planet Rock goes, and Six Music inherits a slice of its audience.
How I love paying my licence fee.
