Simon Bates is taking his Our Tune feature national for one week as part of a joined-up campaign across BBC locals.
The stations are running a season of programming on love and sex lives in later life, and the old Radio 1 feature is to be part of it, starting today.
Simon, who hosts breakfast on BBC Radio Devon, says: “Our Tune evokes people of all ages who have a heart rendering story to tell or maybe looking for romance! I am looking forward to sharing some real life love stories for Our Tune that I hope will touch the hearts of all our listeners.”
BBC Local Radio will broadcast and share on social media the ups and downs of Love in Later Life in their fifties, sixties, seventies and above.
The Our Tune feature, first heard on BBC Radio 1 in 1980 and various stations since, will air daily on the Mark Forest Show from 7-10pm during the Love in Later Life feature.
