Question by Jacob: What sort of bands does the BBC 6 Music radio station play? Please give examples of bands not genres.?
Please give 7 or 8 examples of bands not just a genre (e.g. “Radiohead, The Beatles” etc. NOT “jazz” or “rock”.)

(And I can’t just tune into 6 Music because I don’t have a radio so streaming media i.e. radio is blocked)

Thanks

    I’m looking for the answer to this question too, intrigued by the BBC’s latest proposal to terminate broadcast.

    SO FAR I am very impressed and think it would be a great loss.

    Genres seem to include new age, progressive, cutting-edge rock/indie styles, perhaps even electronic. Also includes iconic bands from the last 40 years ( so i can imagine The Smiths or The Beatles are played)

    I am most impressed by them recently airing an in-session by Interpol! Doesn’t get any cooler!

    So in conclusion, Radio 6 play all genres of rock from the last 40 years, and air bands at the cutting edge of modern day rock. Sounds a little like XFM no?
