Weekly Radio 2 show for Lamacq

BBC Radio 2 is having a schedule shuffle. Mike Harding's folk show and Paul Jones' rhythm and blues show move to an earlier evening slot of 7.00pm, and Mark Radcliffe's show moves to 8.00-10.00pm which will be co-presented with Stuart Maconie. In addition, Steve Lamacq gets a regular show each Wednesday.

Steve will be playing his choice of music and introducing the audience to emerging artists. Steve will continue to present on BBC 6 Music and BBC Radio 1.

Nick Barraclough will be fronting a series of exclusive specials featuring some of the biggest names in country music. These will take the place of his hourly Wednesday night country show which comes to the end of its run on 11 April.

Bob Harris's country show continues at 7.00pm on a Thursday.

Lesley Douglas, Controller, Radio 2, says: "Humphrey Lyttelton's decision to present fewer Best Of Jazz programmes prompted me to take a fresh look at the schedule: "I am delighted to be able to give both folk and rhythm & blues earlier slots, giving both vibrant genres a high profile. Mike Harding and Paul Jones brilliantly reflect their respective music scenes.

"Country music remains high on the network's agenda — with Bob Harris's regular country show complemented by Nick Barraclough's new specials which will give a platform to the breadth of country artists.

"Mark Radcliffe's and Stuart Maconie's show will come live from Manchester and will be a unique offering in the 8.00pm slot.

"I'm looking forward to the combination of two of the country's leading music presenters who have an exceptional chemistry both on and off air.

"This new, live strand will give us the opportunity to reflect music events such as The Cambridge Folk Festival and The BBC Jazz Awards with even greater depth and breadth in a live situation."

Humphrey Lyttelton will share the 10.30pm slot on Monday nights with Jools Holland — with each presenter hosting two quarters of the year.
