Holmes moves to Radio 2 for the summer

6 Music host Jon Holmes will be presenting Saturday mornings on BBC Radio 2 this summer, covering Graham Norton.

The show, called the Jon Holmes Situation, starts on July 21st for two weeks, but then takes a break during the Olympic programmes returning on August 18th.

His current show on 6 Music is broadcast at the same time-slot so a handful of guest presenters will cover for him, including writer and broadcaster Andrew Collins.

On 2, he’ll have a different guest each week, with Penelope Keith, Nerys Hughes, Sue Pollard and Linda Robson lined up so far. We’re told regular features on the programme will include the Ken Bruce Master Quiz in which pop stars will have to answer questions about Ken Bruce, Toddler Pops in which Jon invites listeners to identify the tune as played by a two-year-old child on a toy glockenspiel and Band I Found On MySpace Or… where a listener battles against a studio guest in a game of names. And in His Busker’s Voice slot, Jon will showcase brand new music talent in a series of live sessions.

Jon told RadioToday.co.uk: “I love both radio and also, coincidentally, the number ‘2’ so this is in many ways a perfect fit for me. Think of me as the summer supply teacher for Mr Norton’s class, which means, like any supply teacher, I won’t have a clue where you’re up to with your reading and literacy, so instead we’ll just mess about and play games.”
