The revolution will not be televised.

It will come to you via your radio. BBC Radio One has made a final and quite reasonable decision about the John Peel Show slot:
John Peel's week night show will be succeeded by OneMusic, three shows hosted by three DJs, dedicated to championing a diverse, unpredictable and non-commercial mix of new music.

It is widely accepted that John Peel can never be replaced. The challenge for the new show therefore is to keep his legacy alive. OneMusic will do this through its support for new artists both signed and unsigned with an emphasis on UK talent.

I'm particulalry pleased that Rob Da Bank, who did such a creditable job filling in the last month, is part of this solution. For the entire press release click here.
