Heads Down Radio goes to the BBC


All is not well at Chateau Tubbs. My records are currently piled high, like towering pillars of vinyl babel all over my living room. My living room resembles a panic room; not the kind of room you lock yourself in (in a potentially dangerous situation), but a panic room in the sense that it’s inhabitant is panicking.

This Saturday (i.e tomorrow night) I’m debuting on BBC 6 Music’s 6 Mix for a Heads Down special transmission. I have two hours to play whatever I want: post punk, disco, afro, freaky Balearica… You get the idea. I wish I could play it cool and be all “whatever” about it, but I can’t. I’m properly excited.

The other reason I’m panicking is because there are steadfast rumours that 6 Music is about to get axed during the upcoming budget cuts. It would be a huge loss to the BBC network, and a massive lifestyle disruption for so many people I know. For people who love to listen to consistently good music, 6 is it. You can do something about this by signing theĀ petition.
