Bam Bam is Back

Congratulations to Bam Bam who annouced he was joining Capital Radio this week. He'll be hosting their evening show from March 12th.
It'll be intresting to see how the show develops over the next 6 months and how Bam takes to being on in the evening after such a long stint on mornings. I suspect the show will feel very much like a Breakfast show... but in the evening!

And let's hope that he's given the creative freedom to provide listeners with an engaging and entertaining product, and not overly formatted from Day 1.

Any show which drives younger listeners to have a strong relationship with the radio, is good for the future of the medium, and I really hope that Capital get this right.

A post script about the outgoing evening show host, Paul Gillies. (There's always a casualty in these situations) There's a guy who can execute CHR style, format radio in a great way. I'm certain it won't be long before we hear him back on the radio in a regular slot. You can't keep a good jock down!
