So those BBC mandarins have gone and made the most ridiculous decision of them all as a massive schedule change at 6 Music sees the relegation of the Radcliffe and Maconie show from weekday afternoons to a weekend breakfast show.
It really is an absurd move. Radcliffe and Maconie is not only the best show on 6 but the best show on radio, full stop. It's been a beacon of hope for listeners since 20011 (when it moved from Radio 2 weekday evenings after a successful four years there) and the decision to slash the pair's broadcast time from fifteen hours per week down to just six, shunted off from the 1pm til 4pm weekday slot to a 7am til 10am weekend slot is an incredibly short sighted one from the mandarins and not, it seems, one either broadcaster was looking for. Twitter has been overwhelmed by a mass pouring of protest and criticism at this decision. There's also a petition at change.org that I strongly urge you all to sign. You can do so here
