He’ll be covering Sara Cox for one week only on the BBC Radio 2 Sounds of the 80s programme.
The former Top of the Pops host is standing in for Sara on Friday 9th June from 9.30pm till midnight playing music from te 80s, plus regular features The Megamax, an Anorak Track and the Novelty Track.
Gary says: “Without a doubt some of the best times of my life occurred during the 11 years I spent at the BBC presenting Top Of The Pops and of course my shows on Radio 1 so a huge thanks to Radio 2 for inviting me back after 23 years. I’m really looking forward to sitting in for Sara Cox on Sounds of the 80’s, I might be a little rusty but I promise it will be fun!”
