I'll be playing a mix of popular and classical music that I love, and hope that my listeners will enjoy it too. I'm aware of the special nature of Sunday nights on Radio 2, and hope I can add to that."

Lesley Douglas, Controller BBC Radio 2 says: "I'm really pleased that Alan has agreed to present a regular show on Sunday evenings. Alan is passionate about music and I know that his broad taste will be the perfect mix for Sunday evenings. He has already proved to be a hit with listeners with his Bank Holiday specials, and over the years in various programmes. It's nice to welcome him back."
