Earlier today, 6Music was having a bit of gentle fun:
What's your favourite episode of Peppa Pig that's never been aired? @bbc6breakfast loves the one where Daddy Pig has too much to drink...— BBC Radio 6 Music (@BBC6Music) March 24, 2015
Okay, it's hardly Danny Baker Morning Edition level stuff, but it's fun if you like that sort of thing. (Not as much fun as listening to Michael Fallon twisting in the wind, spewing out reasons why we shouldn't ask about Cameron's bollock-drop last night like a shiny pinata, of course, but people make their choices.)
Oddly, this turned out to be a red line for York's Inwell vinyl and book store:
Re: Last RT. Awful. This is why I can't get on board w/ @BBC6Music. There's a sniggery, wrongheaded indie-kid aspect to their personality.— The Inkwell (@InkwellYork) March 24, 2015
One tweet from one show, and the whole place - from Marc Riley's session support for new bands through to Stuart Maconie's Freakshow - is dismissed as "a sniggery, wrong-headed indie-kid" type of place.
I'm not a fan of breakfasts on 6 myself, but would rather have a bit of knock-about fun than a po-faced 'music is a temple and must always be treated with quiet respect' approach. There's a lot of places on 6Music where you'll be read the sleeve notes from a Lou Reed album; a few shows which try different approaches are going to make the station attractive to a wider number of listeners. Some of whom might go from enjoying some light entertainment over breakfast to buying obscure vinyl some day.
