The Evening Session returns
BBC 6 Music DJ Steve Lamacq and Radio 1's Jo Whiley are set to revive the Evening Session on 6 Music for a one-off special on Friday 2 April, in its original time slot.
The show will air on the digital station between 6pm and 9pm, and feature some of the original features of the programme, previously on Radio 1.
Steve Lamacq says: "I jumped at the chance to work with Jo again, because we both have slightly different visions of what pop music is, but they seem to complement each other. Plus, if you make a mistake, you have someone to cover for you!
"We'll be revisiting some of the music, interviews and sessions from the Nineties which we covered the first time around – people like Blur, Oasis and Radiohead – while also showcasing bands and tracks we're excited about now."
Jo Whiley says: "I'm looking forward to being back on air with Steve on a show that is really close to my heart. Being reunited with my radio partner after all these years will be a lot of fun and will bring back memories for not just us but the people who grew up with us too. Plus it'll be fun to see how many we got right and how much we got wrong. Can't wait!"
Bob Shennan, Controller Radio 2 and 6 Music, says "BBC 6 Music is the perfect place to revive such a loved and respected programme. Steve and Jo can look back at the music scene that they are so intrinsically linked with and bring context to its influence on what's happening today."
