The aim of this petition is to collect the names of those peope who would like Andy Kershaw's regular music programme to be re-intstated on BBC Radio. The absence of Andy's unique music knowledge, wry humour and boundless enthusiasm, has left a gaping hole in BBC Radio's serious music output. If you agree add you name here and lets convince the powers that be at the Beeb that we want him back where he belongs.
- Andy Kershaw was a BBC Radio DJ for 15 years
- He continued his programmes on BBC Radio Three up until 2007
- His has introduced a veritable who's who of world music to his audience
- Sessions recorded for his programmes are collected, celebrated and championed
- His rejection of mainstream radio output insures his programmes are educational and entertaining.
- He's not afraid to get his hands dirty, travelling to some notoriously dangerous places to discover and record artists for his programmes.
- His commitment to music is second to none.
- His presence on Radio is sorely missed (evident from the growing community on his Facebook page).
Please also contact BBC Radio Three and make your voice herd that you want Andy back on the Radio ASAP. (You can do this online by following the link on the right).
