Evening changes at BBC Ulster

BBC Radio Ulster is to make music the highlight of evening listening from next Monday (February 5th). Ralph McLean heads the new team designed to take an in-depth look at a wide range of popular music with a different theme each evening.

Leading these changes is a modern new multi-platform Across The Line; three major new music programmes; and extended broadcasting hours, with the station now opening up from midnight until the early hours for a range of new music shows from music experts Donna Legge, Mickey Bradley (The Undertones), Joe Lindsay and Linley Hamilton.

Head of BBC Radio Ulster, Susan Lovell says: "This is the most exciting music line-up we've ever had on BBC Radio Ulster.

"We've put our best music experts at the heart of the evening and night-time schedules — ready to share their passions and discoveries across the widest range of musical genres.

"Ralph McLean is your trusted night-time guide and his new music shows will have a broad appeal to audiences interested in all kinds of music, from new releases to classic tracks.

"Across The Line is refreshed and relaunched for a new age. There will still be all the best of local and international, new and breaking music — now on a Monday — and now there's more interactivity, more pictures, a brand new website and a dance show on Saturdays.

"And After Midnight will be a great place to find our best specialist music presenters bringing their passion and expertise to a late night audience. We have zoned the schedule making it much easier to navigate.

"Tuesday to Friday from 8-10pm brings a range of popular music to a discerning adult audience; 10pm-midnight is the home of The Late Show, our popular easy-listening strand which goes out six nights a week; while After Midnight, our new nightly strand, is the place to find specialist music with some familiar and some rising talent."

These changes are the latest stage in an ongoing programme designed to refresh and add more choice to BBC Radio Ulster's schedule.
