My mum just phoned me to tell me about this, the Save the Radio 4 Theme petition!

QUOTE
"But we leave you with the sad news ... the BBC UK theme played on Radio 4 is to be scrapped. It's been good enough for the past 33 years, but if you tune in, as they say in radioland, at half past five in the morning you will hear instead what's been described as a 'pacy news briefing' so enjoy it while you can. We've no idea what the head of Radio 4's playing at - we're thinking of using it every night. Goodnight." Jeremy Paxman, Newsnight 23rd January 2006


I, for one, am outraged! And thought you should all hear about this! I LOVE the short medley of shanties and other stuff they have on at 5:20am! You hear it on your way to catch the ferry or an airplane or going somewhere else, usually on holiday. For me, I don't hear it that often, so when I do, I enjoy! It reminds me of previous holidays or outings and it just sounds cool!
So please! Sign the petition (whether you know what I'm talking about or not laugh.gif ) and help Save the Radio 4 Theme!

I've signed the petition on the general principle that I hate news blurbs in the morning and folk songs are nice. smile.gif

While I think some people can be a little over sensitive about change and shouldn't really be encouraged, the people that make most of a fuss are generally the ones that listen to radio 4. So maybe they should leave it is it was.

If I could hear it I'd sign....
Maybe they're just trying to get a younger audience by using a new tune?

They aren't replacing it with another theme, they are replacing it with news! Which we hear all day anyway!
It's only 5 mins and it's bitching laugh.gif Rule Britania (even if your not British, it's lively!), Oh Danny Boy, What Should We Do With A Drunken Sailor (oh come on, who doesn't like that?), Something I can't name but you recognise when you hear it, Early One Morning, and Rule Britania!

Here's a link to the theme, sorry its a .ram, i'll see if there is a better one around.
Theme

Edit~ if they were trying to get a younger audience, I don't think they'd try at 5:20am ^^'

I've only heard it broadcast once, because I don't usually listen to the radio at that time (although I am often up around then), but I do like it.

I dont know about britain, but over here some highschool students have to get up at 5 to catch the bus.... AKA: Me. x.x; Though okay, so news isnt any sort of good substitute for music

I signed it, only because Jeremy Paxman brought up memories of a game me and a mate made about him, which was basically Pacman with Jeremy Paxman.
