New BBC Radio 2 Weekend Schedule

Well… Red Nose Day is over with quite a few £millions raised over night. Time to get back to some sort of normality. Today’s blog post is something I’m really looking forward to. Its BBC Radio 2’s new weekend schedule!

Paul O` Grady, Alan Carr and Emma Forbes will join the regular line up of presenters. Johnnie Walker who currently presents ‘Pirate Johnnie Walker’ on a Saturday night alongside a Sunday afternoon show will see a new show, and a new start for ‘Sounds of the 70s’.

The new schedule looks very exciting – although I’m still disappointed that Bob Harris’ show starts at 11pm. You can click here to read the full article from the BBC Press office. See below for a quick look at the new line up.
