    Coldplay 'very pleased' that BBC6 Music has been saved

    bbc6music.jpgColdplay have said that they are "very pleased" that BBC 6 Music has been saved from closure. The BBC Trust chairman Sir Michael Lyon today (July 5) rejected proposals for the digital station to be shut as part of budget cuts. Let us know what you think in the World of Music forum now [thanks mc_squared]


    Coldplay were one of a host of musicians who backed a campaign for the station to be saved when its proposed closure was first muted in March. In a message on coldplay.com, the band praised fans who rallied for 6 Music to remain open. The group, who are currently recording their new album, added that 6 Music played “a crucial and unique role in British music”.


    Today, Coldplay responded with the following statement: "You might remember that, earlier this year, the BBC announced its plans to close 6 Music, the wonderful radio station which plays a crucial and unique role in British music. We're very pleased to report that the BBC Trust today rejected the station's planned closure. This was largely due to the enormous public opposition to the plans. So, we'd like to offer heartfelt congratulations to everyone at 6 Music and a big thanks to all of you who took the trouble to contact the BBC Trust and voice your opinions. Coldplay."
