R 2 Overnight Cuts.
Jan 9th, 2017, 3:04pm
 
According to "Radio Today"...

"There will be no live overnight programmes on BBC Radio 2 from February as the station cancels the After Midnight show..........Instead, repeats of other Radio 2 shows will air from midnight and different styles of music will play out till 5am, in a new strand called Radio 2 Playlists."

Their report is here.

According to this announcement ...

"Between 2am and 5am Monday to Friday, and Saturday and Sunday 3am till 6pm, Radio 2 Playlists will feature music from Radio 2ís different genres."

3 am to 6 pm????  

Either someone's made a typo - or it looks like Saturdays and Sundays will be virtually all day repeats!!

Aha--I think I rather like the idea of curated PLAYLISTS, presumably without DJ presentation(yes? no?) ....I will listen during the day on Iplayer Radio  when i DO not want inane chat.
Well done the BBC!
