In your car:

Most new cars now come with digital radio fitted as standard, but if you don't have digital radio in your car, the good news is that it's easy to upgrade your car radio to a digital radio with an easy install adapter or a replacement digital radio.

  • There are a range of products to choose from and they often come with extra features such as Bluetooth and hands free. Go to your local car dealer, car audio specialist or Halfords and look for the Digital Radio Tick Mark. It’s your reassurance that the radio you are buying is an approved product that will receive all your available stations.
  • If you would prefer not to buy an adapter or replacement radio, then you can also listen in your car by connecting your smartphone through an aux in cable, Bluetooth or a docking device and listen via the free Virgin Radio UK app or the Radioplayer app.

Lauren Laverne kicks off new schedule for 6 Music
Home

The UK’s biggest digital-only radio station, BBC 6 Music, has started the New Year with an exciting new schedule which came into place on Monday 6 January.

After 11 years hosting breakfast, Shaun Keaveny, has a new home on weekday afternoons from 1-4pm, with Lauren Laverne, who previously presented weekdays from 10am-1pm, picking up the reins as the new 6 Music breakfast host. Lauren kicked off her first breakfast show on Monday morning by playing Starfish and Coffee by Prince.

Speaking about the new show, Lauren Laverne said:

“I’m so excited about our new show and delighted to be part of the next phase of 6 Music’s evolution. Whatever the day brings for our listeners we intend to get them ready for it with a fantastic selection of music and guests who have something worth hearing to say.”

On weekends, Mark Radcliffe and Stuart Maconie co-host the new 6 Music weekend breakfast show, whilst Mary Anne Hobbs has moved to weekday mornings from 10.30am-1pm.

Steve Lamacq’s show stays in its regular weekday slot, and the evening schedule remains unchanged.

BBC 6 Music is renowned for its diverse range of music and respected presenters and programme makers who bring their passion, knowledge and music curation to their shows. With these changes, which are the most significant since 2012, the station will bring even more music to listeners, particularly in daytime.

BBC 6 Music launched in 2002 and now attracts an audience of 2.52 million listeners (RAJAR Q3 2018) making it the most popular digital-only radio station in the UK.

Paul Rodgers, Head of 6 Music, says:

“Much-loved presenters playing amazing music is at the heart of what 6 Music does, and these schedule changes will help deliver an even greater range of music on the station across daytime and weekends.”

The brand new schedule for BBC 6 Music:

Monday to Friday
5am-7.30am Chris Hawkins
7.30am-10.30am Lauren Laverne
10.30am-1pm Mary Anne Hobbs
1pm-4pm Shaun Keaveny

Saturday and Sunday
7-10am Mark Radcliffe and Stuart Maconie
