Paul Gambaccini to present Pick of the Pops

Paul Gambaccini is to take over presenting Pick of the Pops on Saturday afternoons from  1pm-3pm as part of Radio 2’s new summer schedule.

The show has been presented by Mark Goodier for the last few months after Tony Blackburn was taken off air, but it’s now been confirmed that Paul Gamabccini will take over from Saturday 9th July. Paul said: “I am honoured to be asked to present one of Britain’s iconic radio programmes.  I will strive to meet the standards of my illustrious predecessors including Alan Freeman and Tony Blackburn.”

In other changes, while Graham Norton takes his summer break, Fearne Cotton and Martin Kemp will be making their Radio 2 debuts with a new live show from Saturday 9 July until Saturday 10 September.

The show will be  mix of music and top guests. As well as looking back at and mulling over some of the more offbeat news stories from the past week that you may have missed, Fearne and Martin will be joined each week by two top celebrity guests. Plus in a fully interactive show some listeners will be able to “Meet their Hero” live on air via the phone and ask them a question. From time to time there will be the odd acoustic performance live in the studio. Every week there will be three tracks from a classic vintage album of the week alternately chosen by Fearne or Martin.
