Gilles Peterson // BBC Radio 6 Music // Gilles Sits In For Lauren
October 12, 2015
Big news for fans of GP’s Saturday session on 6 Music: next week Gilles is set to take the reigns for Lauren Laverne’s mid-morning show on the Beeb’s flagship hub for new music. After moving to his weekly mid-afternoon slot from the late night enclave of Radio 1 a few years back, this mini-residency is another chance for him to spread the Worldwide love even further. Of the announcement, Gilles said:
“Lauren does an amazing job to have the energy and enthusiasm to host that slot each and every day of the week. It’s great to be asked and I’m excited about the prospect. Now I just have to make sure I don’t play anything too out there that scares people off!”
Tune in from 10 – 1 every day next week from Monday the 19th.
