Sony radio award winning double-act Adam and Joe are to return to BBC 6 Music from next month after a break from the station.
They'll do an initial 12-week run in the 10am to 1pm Saturday slot from the start of April
Their extended sabbatical has seen Joe Cornish make his film directorial debut with the soon to be released 'Attack The Block' and Adam Buxton present the award winning Adam's Big Mixtape for 6 Music as well as continuing to perform live comedy and host the BFI's highly successful bi-monthly music video showcase BUG.
Both are excited to be back at, what they call, the Big British Castle. Adam Buxton says: "I can't wait to get back to our show on Saturdays, I've really missed doing it. Not that I haven't been every bit as busy as Joe. I've created several new filing systems for my CDs and DVDs, successfully reunited over 20 odd socks with their partners and learned to understand the language of ants (though I'm finding Dec's more of a problem). It's been fun but I'm looking forward to talking rubbish and playing brilliant music with Joe again."
Bob Shennan, Controller of Radio 2 and 6 Music, told us: "I know listeners have been missing Adam and Joe's warm and witty banter from their Saturday mornings so I'm enormously pleased to welcome back their Sony Award-winning show to the network."
The pair first broadcast on 6 Music in 2007 and awards for their shows include Broadcasting Press Guild award for Radio Programme of the Year 2008; Sony Silver Award in the best Comedy, Entertainment and Competition categories in 2009; and a Sony Gold Award for Best Comedy Show in 2010. As well as their Saturday morning slot, Adam and Joe have also presented from festivals including Glastonbury and Camden Crawl.
