Radio Scotland Remixed
Every weekday evening at 8PM, BBC Radio Scotland hands its airwaves over to DJs with specialist musical knowledge and interest covering a wide variety of genres from jazz to folk to world to country to indie and electronic music and beyond.
The 21st of February 2011 will see these shows coming together and being "remixed" with presenters taking over each others show and throwing the genres into the mixing pot for a week long series entitled "Radio Scotland Remixed".
The schedule looks like this:
Monday - Feb 21 - Ricky Ross
Ricky Ross in for Vic Galloway - alternative music with an Americana flavour.
Tuesday, Feb 22 - Global House
Stephen Duffy in for Mary Ann Kennedy - world music on a jazz trip.
Friday, Feb 25 - Another Country with Vic Galloway
Vic Galloway in for Ricky Ross - country music from the edgier side of life.
We'll be speaking to the presenters next week to find out more about what you can expect.
Jeff Zycinski, Head of BBC Radio Scotland, said today: "Since the launch of BBC Radio Scotland, music has played an important part in the schedule and now broadcasts over 50 hours of music programmes each week with a strong commitment to championing Scottish artists, new talent and live music. We have a strong line-up of live music across the year from the recent Celtic Connections, Young Traditional Musician of the Year, and T in the Park in the summer to a weekly mix of jazz, classical, americana, traditional and popular contemporary programmes. This is an opportunity for BBC Radio Scotland's listeners to discover music they never knew they liked when they hear their favourite presenter enthusing and about a different genre of music."
