BBC 6Music wins 'National Radio Station Of The Year' award

Congratulations to all at BBC 6Music, which won the 'National Radio Station of the Year' at last night's MusicWeek Awards, and deservedly so.

Since discovering the station a few years ago I have become a regular listener over the last two years. In fact 6Music is my main resource for new music, and it's fair to say I wouldn't have bought so many records over the last couple of years if it wasn't for 6Music. Overall the station is a valuable resource for any music lover. Steve Lamacq's show keeps me updated with new bands as well as bringing back lots of nostalgia, Marc Riley's show has introduced me to countless excellent groups new and old, Tom Ravencroft (son of John Peel) brings a wildly eclectic programme of music to Friday night, and then there's Adam And Joe's hilarious Saturday morning show, easily the funniest thing on radio by far. And if that isn't enough Jarvis Cocker hosts his wonderful show on Sunday, Stuart Maconie hosts The Freak Zone full of bizarre oddities, and then of course there's Gideon Coe's late night feast of musical excellence.

Long may 6Music's glory continue...
