Save 6 Music: Noah and the Whale lend support with video

NATWFolky foursome Noah and the Whale have spoken out about the proposed closure of 6music on their blog.

The band said: “The BBC is currently facing great tragedy. A tragedy that will be catastrophic on all alternative music groups, new bands and unsigned artists.”

They called the radio station “one of the very few champions of good alternative music left in the mainstream media” .
