Gilles Peterson Launches New Show on BBC Radio 6

Saturdays will have a new look starting April 7th, when renowned and much loved presenter Gilles Peterson launches a new Saturday show from 3pm-6pm on BBC Radio 6.

Gilles will extend Radio 6’s musical range by stirring up more soul, jazz, hip hop, and dance to the network. He states, “I feel extremely lucky and privileged to be joining BBC Radio 6 Music after 13 years on Radio 1. The level of music appreciation by the presenters and listeners is really exciting for me and I’m sure there’s much I can learn to aid me and continue the journey I’ve been on since my pirate radio days. I feel like I’m coming home before I’ve even been there.”

Gilles Peterson Worldwide Box Of Delights

The past few installments of the Worldwide Show, Gilles has been running the show solo – taking us deep into the mind of a musical guru. He never fails to introduce the listening audience to cuts that the artists themselves have barely heard outside of the studio. We are delighted to catch up with this young man as he teaches us a thing or two about proper mixology.
