Comedian Serafinowicz joins 6 Music

BBC Radio 6 Music has hired comedian, writer and actor Peter Serafinowicz for a series of six shows.

The three hour weekly show will air every Saturday from 10am-1pm, starting this weekend.

Following Richard Bacon’s series of programmes, Peter will present musical choices, opinions and weekend guests. He’ll be answering some challenging listener questions in his Q&A sessions and will be looking to listeners for some musical suggestions.

Peter said: “I’m excited and thrilled to be presenting a show on BBC 6 Music. I’m a huge fan of the network and I’m looking forward to playing some great music (on my violin) and putting the ‘fun’ back in radio, so it becomes ‘rafundio.”

Paul Rodgers, Editor, BBC Radio 6 Music, said: “Peter is a great addition to the Radio 6 Music family. He brings with him a wealth of experience from his past projects and I am really pleased to have him as part of our Saturday schedule.”

Radio 6 Music’s weekend schedule includes shows presented by Jarvis Cocker, Cerys Matthews, Craig Charles and Guy Garvey.
