Re-instate the Danny Baker Show on BBC London 94.9

    1. Petition by

      Jo Coughlin

      United Kingdom

This is a mere radio show on BBC London but means a lot to a lot of people. Danny Baker and the Candy Crew have a genius ability to make a lot of people happy, relaxed and escape to a land where BBC suits don't exist and anything is possible. This Sony Award winning show has been axed of of tomorrow due to cuts on the BBC. We need to save this show and at least get it transferred to another station immediately. Their is already outrage and upset so join this petition and get this show saved. Danny we love you candyman x


BBC radio presenter Danny Baker blasted his bosses live on air today - labeling them 'pinheaded weasels' after they axed his popular show just days before he is due to be honoured with a top broadcasting award.

The presenter first announced that his show on London 94.9 was being axed on Twitter this morning - quickly following it up with a string of critical tweets about the BBC. 

And when he showed up for his afternoon programme, he continued his tirade, calling his BBC bosses 'weasels' who should 'have choked on their abacuses'.

Tirade: Danny Baker told his Twitter followers not to worry about him after he announced his show was being axed - saying he could always sell his Sony Awards, which he promptly posted a picture of (shown above)

Explaining the cancellation to the audience, he said: 'Very good afternoon, everyone. As you may have heard, this show has been cancelled by the BBC. This may be the last one we ever do, but let's look past that. Nobody from the station rang me.



'No jokes, this show has been cancelled. 

'While we can, let's huddle together like cavemen outside, sheltering for warmth. 

'The BBC have cancelled this show for financial reasons. Don't worry, we'll keep you right across any drain blockages over there.

'They have no idea what this show does for Londoners and it's not about keeping you across the drains being blocked.'
