French and Saunders hijack BBC Radio 2

Comedians French and Saunders are to take over BBC Radio 2 for an entire day, in aid of the BBC’s Comic Relief charity appeal on March 15th.

Station controller Bob Shennan said: “What better way to celebrate Red Nose Day’s 25th anniversary than to hand the Radio 2 reins over to two of this country’s greatest comedy legends.”

The station will also broadcast a concert organised by Russell Brand on March 6th. He was a presenter on the station until that incident with Jonathan Ross in 2008.

BBC Radio 6 Music is also joining in the fund-raising, with Simpsons voice Harry Shearer and comedian Kathy Burke creating shows for the digital network.

On March 15th breakfast presenter Shaun Keaveny will host his show from the BBC Radio Theatre and welcome various guests including actor Adam Buxton and comedian Tim Vine.
