About BBC Radio 6 Music

Listen online to the internet radio of BBC Radio 6 Music live, which is the most listened to radio in the competition of the only digitally distributed radios with more than 2.5 million weekly listeners in the UK. Almost every alternative and indie music lover can find his account in the musical palette, because the station compiles its musical line-up mainly from the past 40 years to the present. Sometimes it steps back further in time, and brings some pieces from the 60s, and 70s too. Primarily alternative and indie fill up the musical repertoire, but also pop, rock, trip-hop, electronica, dance, indie pop and iconic rock diversify the palette, furthermore live concerts are also broadcasted. The radio broadcasts the year after year growing 6 Music Festival live, which is BBC’s official music festival in the United Kingdom.
BBC Radio 6 Music morning programme doesn't have the generally used "Breakfast" word in its name, but it has the expected good mooded and dynamic characteristics to rev up the atmosphere. On weekdays from 7:30am to 10:30am Lauren Laverne leads the morning block with diverse content, from music news to talks, and occasionally scientific and poetic topics are also discussed with various guests.

BBC Radio 6 Music 's slogan: "The place for the best Alternative Music"
