Campaigners fight for axed Radio 1 DJ Andy Kershaw: my knee-jerk reaction to Andy Kershaw’s sacking is “Oh, that’s a shame”, especially when you compare Kershaw’s easygoing, affable style to the on-air posturings of slugs like Chris Moyles. But, but, but…I never actually listened to Kershaw, and the BBC does have five national radio stations to play with. Why not put him straight onto Radio 3, which is forever dipping toes into sharky waters with programmes like Mixing It?
