This morning in the small hours (1-3am) we held a virtual party on Twitter to mark our last late-night Fresh On The Net radio show. If you’d like to see everybody’s tweets, the hashtag was #FarewellFOTN
However, when one door closes another opens – and from this Easter weekend I’ll be involved in some new and exciting happenings on 6 Music.
Firstly NowPlayingAt6Music has been nominated for a Sony Radio Award on May 14th, and moves to Sunday afternoons, following the Jarvis Cocker slot, from 6-8pm. Starting this Easter Sunday…
Secondly I get a new three-hour Saturday night show with a much bigger audience from 9pm-midnight. It will include vintage tracks from my record collection as well as new tunes, guests and the occasional session. Also, after next weekend, it’ll also go out live most weeks so that we can chat and interact with listeners.
And thirdly, our album-length podcasts not only continue uninterrupted, but will get their own 60 minute radio show on Monday mornings from 2-3am – to be known as The Introducing Mixtape.
But in the meantime, if you would like to post memories of the last four years online, feel free to leave a comment here or on my BBC Blog.
