Blog. Why signing in to my blog? To read someting else about MJ, the United Kingdom, music, tourist destinations and Italy. Please see the right side of this page.

And why following my tweets, becoming a friend of mine on Facebook and so on? Simply to chat with me or interact. My profiles in PlurkI Like and Bebo. And do you listen to BBC Asian Network (videos) or 6 Music (videos)?

No sound for Asian Britain? Save the BBC Asian Network! From a blog and a deejay:

Trust has received 1000 complaints to keep Asian Network open. This is ridiculous. The station is key to the Asian music scene.  Seems apathy has reared it’s ugly head in regards to Save BBC Asian Network. Come on everyone, we can do better than 1000 complaints. EMAIL srconsultation@bbc.co.uk NOW to Save BBC Asian Network. Just be honest. Keep it simple or state your reasons for not closing it down.
