BBC 6 Music is one of the BBC's digital radio stations, launched on 11 March 2002 and originally codenamed Network Y. It was the first national music radio station to be launched by the BBC in 32 years. It is only available via digital media: DAB radio, the Internet, various forms of digital television and across northern Europe via the Astra 2A satellite. The station plays "alternative" genres of music, including indie, classic rock, punk, jazz, funk and hip hop, and generally provides an alternative to the more mainstream, chart oriented Radio 1 and Radio 2. BBC 6 Music is the sister station of Radio 2. As one founding premise of the station, many BBC 6 Music shows make significant use of the extensive BBC session and live music archives belonging to the BBC (including the impressive "Peel Sessions" put together by the late John Peel and dating from the late 1960s to his death). There are also intimate live music in-studio sessions with contemporary artists, somewhat reminiscent of "unplugged sessions", on a number of shows, but especially in the 6 Music "hub" pioneered by the presenter Gideon Coe on his morning show, and also right in the broadcast studio on the Evening Sequence show with Tom Robinson. Another founding premise is that there is a high level of live, on-air interactivity with the listening audience, both active and passive, making use of the modern technological tools available, such as the World Wide Web, text messaging, emails and the like.

Listeners can frequently in vivo decide which upcoming songs will or won't be played on shows. Listeners can also use the website to listen again to any show they have missed, find out more about the playlists and presenters as well as keep up to date with breaking music news. In the early days the station's presenters were generally regarded as experts in their musical field. Their sophistication and the interactivity afforded to listeners is reflected in the station's slogan, "closer to the music that matters." Read more on Last.fm.
