BBC Essex’s Leechy to play seven hours of soul

BBC Essex presenter John Leech will be presenting seven hours of soul music on Bank Holiday Monday, 31st August.

He’ll be on-air from 12pm till 7pm and will be joined by a number of soul guests including Alexander O’Neal and Howard Hewett from Shalamar.

Speaking of the random challenge John said: “I’ve been working out in the gym to get in shape for such a long show! It’s going to be quite a task but it’s a great chance to play the best soul songs to the people of Essex.”

John is usually on-air from 4pm till 7pm each Sunday with a soul music show.

Managing Editor of BBC Essex, Lou Birt, said she’s excited about the mammoth event: “I have no doubt that John will do a fantastic job. He is an icon in the local Soul music scene and I have complete faith that we’ll keep him going for seven whole hours.

“I’ll have the team on hand to provide him with energy drinks and plenty of carbs throughout the day so he makes it to 7pm!”
