Tom Robinson

Here in Singapore I just listened to your interview with Tom Robison & Brian Eno which I really enjoyed.  I wish when you were talking about Tom Robinson's wonderful programme on BBC6 you had mentioned that BBC6 is under threat and people are petitioning to save it.  A world response would make a difference.  (Of course you may have mentioned it right at the end - my radio alarm switched off the last few minutes!)

Best wishes,
