If you don't know who Delia Derbyshire is, you've not been reading my blog very long click here

Firstly, the estwhile Dr Goldacre made a sterling suggestion on twitter the other day:I very much approve of this idea. I understand why it hasn't happened yet (BBC staffers never got the credit they deserved, it's why Raymond Cusick doesn't get credited with dalek design too) but that doesn't mean it can't happen now. Just one line to the credits of the show isn't too much to ask, surely? Ben got nearly 250 retweets on that one tweet, but I think Delia deserves a bit more than that. So lets get to it. Email/write/phone the beeb and lets see what we can get done, yeah?

Secondly, and possibly slightly more acheivably, BBC Radio 3's composer of the week feature is seventy years old this year, and they want listeners to suggest composers they haven't featured before. They've provided a handy list of composers they HAVE featured, and Delia is not on it. They say:
If there is someone you think we’ve unjustly overlooked, please do let us know. Send an email to composeroftheweek@bbc.co.uk, write to Composer of the Week, BBC Wales, Cardiff, CF5 2YQ. Or tweet us using the hashtag #COTW70.
I think it'd be awesome to have Delia featured for a whole week on radio 3, and not just because I download the Composer of the Week podcast ;) So if you've got a moment to email or tweet or even write them a snail mail, that'd be fantastic.

Thanks guys :)
