While I'm not sure if the BBC is going back on their decision to remove Crissy Criss and other specialist DJs come September 1, a Norwich supporter named Billy Smith has started a simple petition that states:

"We feel that by cancelling this extremely popular show that you are not celebrating or supporting an extremely popular and very important genre of British music.

Ben Cooper - Controller of BBC Radio 1 and BBC 1Xtra
As supporters of Drum & Bass, we are asking you to reconsider your decision to axe the Crissy Criss 1Xtra show."

At the time of this posting, the petition has almost 900 signatures, with another 100 to go. If the BBC will actually consider it is anyone's guess, but it's great to see the drum & bass community band together and support one of our own. Sign it if you feel the same way! And do yourself a favor: listen back to Crissy's archives.
