Hard to believe, isn't it, that BBC 6 Music was threatened with closure just six years ago? It survived, and has since gone from strength to strength, surpassing the two million listeners mark and most recently posting the highest listening figures for any digital-only radio station. It's sweet vindication for those who stood up to the BBC bean-counters, and proof positive that a sizeable audience exists for what those bean-counters had felt was a niche product, both in terms of its output and its means of delivery.
