Glad to see Trevor Nelson's Saturday show extended to 3 hours, but not good to see the Sunday 'Rhythm Nation' replaced by a 1-3am show midweek. Hopefully the Saturday show will BE the 'Rhythm Nation', rather than the current RnB Chart format, though.
Yep, it seems like he and Gilles Peterson have done a straight swap there. I too hope the R& B chart format will be dropped, because it puts me right off. Do you remember trevors saturday show when it first started, or even his sunday afternoon show? Those were excellent, plenty of time for him to play lots of old 80s soul tracks.
My other thoughts on this are... everyone in daytime has three hours, nice ILR style schedule, though how Colin & Edith can spread themselves over 15 hours a week, i don't know. If i had to listen to all that I'd go insane.
When Sara Cox comes back ( I bet she does), expect a JK & Joel weekend breakfast.
And finally genre themed evenings are a nice idea, but ruined by the fact John peel is sat in the middle of them all. Perhaps they should have risked him between nine and eleven.
