IRON MAIDEN Singer's Radio Show May Fall Victim To BBC's Budget Cuts

According to Guardian.co.uk, IRON MAIDEN singer Bruce Dickinson's Friday-night "Rock Show" may go off the air if digital radio station BBC 6 Music gets axed as part of BBC's overhaul of its digital services.

BBC's web output could be cut in half, with online staff numbers and budgets to be slashed by 25% following director general Mark Thompson's strategic review of the corporation's scope and activities.

Dickinson has been BBC 6 Music since the station's launch.

Bruce's Friday-night "Rock Show" features the IRON MAIDEN singer introducing the best metal and hard tunes to hit the airwaves, and providing a worthy successor to the "Tommy Vance Rock Show".

Bruce has interviewed the biggest names in the rock world today, including Lemmy from MOTÖRHEAD, all four members of METALLICA and former IRON MAIDEN singer Blaze Bayley.
