He’ll be on-air Christmas Eve and New Year’s eve entertaining locals in Wolverhampton. He was recently moved to weekend overnights in a cost-cutting exercise at BBC Radio 2, after his long running early-morning programme on BBC Radio 2 was cut.
In addition, West Midlands radio legend Les Ross, previously of BRMB and BBC Radio Birmingham fame, will also be also be on-air on the same days.
Among the other highlights is a Northern Soul All Nighter on the night of Boxing Day through till the early hours of Saturday 27th December, a Dance All-nighter on New Year’s Eve and “Let’s Get A Little Sentimental”, a programme that brings back to life the local music scene of the late sixties and early seventies on Boxing Day. Its title being that of a single by local group The Montanas.
