Peel's son joins BBC 6 Music

The son of the late John Peel is to host a weekly show on BBC 6 Music.

Tom Ravenscroft briefly appeared on the network last year as a stand-in presenter for Tom Robinson but will take over Friday nights from Iron Maiden singer Bruce Dickinson.

Ravenscroft told the [link=]Guardian[/link] he was thrilled. "It's great to be offered a home on a station with such amazing DJs, who open your ears to lots of exciting music, both new and old," he said. "I intend to do the same and can't wait to get started."

6 Music editor Paul Rodgers said: "Tom Ravenscroft is a great young broadcaster with all the knowledge, passion and articulacy that you might expect from someone of his lineage.

"Tom is much sought-after and we are thrilled that he thinks 6 Music is the best way for him to reach his audience."
