Andy Peebles’ Soul Train transfers to Gold

Smooth Radio’s re-vamped weekend schedule sees a new soul and motown show, but the departure of Andy Peebles’ Soul Train.

The long running show, which he started at Piccadilly Radio in the 70s and took to BBC Radio 1, has been dropped from Smooth  after almost 10 years. It will now be part of the Gold schedule each Saturday night from November.

Andy Peebles said: “I am thrilled to bits to take The Soul Train to Gold and delighted that Richard Park is giving the show such a fantastic platform. I hope that people will make a date with me on Saturday nights and join me for the greatest soul music.”

Global’s Director of Broadcasting Richard Park: “Andy Peebles is one of the UK’s true broadcasting legends. I look forward to welcoming his new home at Gold where The Soul Train will be one of the highlights of the weekend schedule.”

Also, Andi Peters and Paul Anderson are also no longer with the station. Paul presented a Saturday afternoon movie show. Instead a new Saturday evening show, Smooth Movie Songs takes its place with Paul Hollins.

Pete Waterman remains with the station and moves from Friday to Saturday night, whilst Gary King and Gold mid-morning presenter David Andrews get a regular show.

Daryl Denham continues on weekend breakfast, David Prever is on Saturday morning and Emma B remains on Sunday. Earlier this week RadioToday revealed actress Tina Hobley is joining the station for a Sunday morning show, and broke the news that sister station Smooth 70s will be closing tomorrow.

Here’s the new schedule in full:

0000 to 0600: Overnights on Smooth
0600 to 1000: Daryl Denham on Weekend Breakfast
