Protect The BBC

Many believe that the existence of the BBC is in danger both from our current Government and the Murdoch family and their News International Corporation. If this concerns you, then please go to the link below which gives guidance on how you can protest to your MP etc.

Why do I think this is an important issue? Personally I'm a big fan of the following:

I'm sure there are areas for improvement in the organisation but having seen TV around the world, the BBC is just something I value very highly. Although I can live without one or all of the above, I feel I'd be the poorer for it.

Joanne Kelly / Strawberry Sundae Radio Show

Reading DJ Joanne wrote a very nice review of a gig I did in 2012 and has played Something Wild quite a few times on her Strawberry Sunday Radio show. Later in the year I had a great interview with her which can be found here, the success of which I think was largely due to the obvious background work she did in preparation for the interview.

Understandably I'm biased because Joanne has been so favourable but I do think she does a great show if you like indie rock, hearing about upcoming bands and a lot more more besides. Strawberry Sundae is on every Sunday at 7pm for two hours. More details can be found here.
