For 18 years, The Janice Forsyth Show has been broadcasting an eclectic mix of music and interviews that have brought great new bands and artists to the Scottish public's attention. We the undersigned feel it is essential that this show be maintained, not just to continue in the spirit of public information and entertainment that the BBC is duty bound to protect, but to allow a new generation of listeners discover great music. Replacing it with news and sport is a unsuitable alternative and the show should remain.

      Hello all,

      Thanks for signing this petition; it's good to know that there are many people out there who appreciate the importance of Janice's show. Thank you so much for your support in spreading this petition too.

      I'm going to pass the petition over to BBC Scotland next Friday as the axe is looming over the show in August. I think it's fair to say it'll be tough to reverse the decision but if you could pass the petition on to your friends, family and anyone you think might be interested, maybe those extra few people can make a real difference to making the station change its mind.

      Well done all for supporting and rallying round Janice!

      Have been listening to Janice for many years and always enjoyed the mix of chat and music. She also introdiced me to new artists such as Mary Chapin Carpenter many years ago. Since then I have seen MCC live on two occasions. Radio Scotland needs shows such as Janice's.

      Can't believe this decision, it's been an essential part of Saturday for so long. I'm a big R. Scot listener, but this decision makes me wonder about the balance of programming.

      I am signing because Janice's programme was just the right mix at just the right time. And she provided real education under the guise of friendly chat about music and the people involved. She is also very human, female, adult and nothing to do with sport!!! She has become Saturday morning for legions of Scots listeners.

      One of the best broadcasters and shows on radio taken off air on a Saturday has compelled me to sign. Today Clair Grogan is on in place. AWFUL!!!!
