Jazz on BBC under threat?

(Post from Kerstan of Riot Squad Publicity.)
I don't know if you have heard but there is a BBC Trust review of their music services. 
Jazz is already something of a pauper on the BBC - compared to classical and pop music at least and I think there is a real danger of the music being further marginalised. 
With cuts meaning less hours and less budget for recordings and reporting. We can't afford for this to happen.
But we're not entirely powerless - below is a link to the BBC Trust review of music services.
Please make a submission about how you feel about jazz on radio.
Is there enough ? 
Should it be protected ?
 How important do you think the BBC is to the jazz sector ?
It’s really important that we have our say at a time when there are cuts across BBC and jazz may be under threat.

And please if you are able to speed the word then please do - if enough people share this, tweet about this, blog about this and generally spread the word then more and more people will have their say and hopefully the BBC will listen.
After all they kept 6 Music because enough people shouted for it to stay - lets make sure they keep jazz on the BBC too!
