The History of The Archers on BBC 6Music #AdamAndJoe #SaveBBC6Music

Today's choice of clip was a no brainer but if you're not sure why that might be, you can find out here.

If you're new to this silly dribble of noises, I should point out that this was one of my favourite weeks of Adam and Joe nonsense ever - 13th June 2009. If you can track down the entire show (and you know you can) I heartily recommend you listen to it......indoors.

Kate Oates from The Archers production team responded during the next week and you can listen to how this was covered in the 20th June 2009 show.

Check out Adam's latest blog entry. Read what he has to say about 6Music, look at the picture of the gift I was proud to contribute to, download Adam's wonderful, passionate song and learn the words, make a video and tell your friends. Then, and only then may you sit down and have a cup of tea.

The BBC Trust page is here and to make it even easier, this is a really helpful page.However, this fella reckons that filling in the consultation is the way to go.

If you want to join in a friendly meeting of supportive minds, there will be a gathering at the end of the month. Details are here but I'm quoting in case you don't use the Face Booking.

Description: On Saturday 27th March at 12pm, we will gather together outside Broadcasting House to protest against the closure of BBC 6Music.
We have lined up some well-known speakers and live buskers to create an air of festivity. This is a celebration of our beloved station; a demonstration of support for the staff, musicians, and a collective show to the Consultation team that we do not want to lose our station.
What the BBC proposes is unacceptable. 6Music is the only place that caters for our diverse tastes; the only station where you will hear Howling Bells played back to back with Seasick Steve; The Isley Brothers leading into dEUS, Delphic, Yeasayer and all topped off with dash of Half Man Half Biscuit.
The DJs play the music they love for people who love music. It is valuable showcase for new bands and artists, and regardless of what the BBC thinks, we will not find this on Radio 2.
So please join us on the 27th. Come along to show your solidarity and support; bring a flask of tea and have a sing-along all in the name of saving 6Music. Invite everyone you know who might not have been invited through the Facebook group and let’s make this a protest to remember!
**Please note that this is intended to be a friendly, peaceful and safe protest. ** ------------------------------------------------------------------
