It has been announced quite recently that Mary Anne Hobbs is going to host a primetime Saturday night slot on Xfm starting this summer on Saturdays from July 9th 2011. Mary Anne had been on BBC Radio One for many years, and was very much the soundtrack to the Wow Cool office until she retired from the Beeb in September 2010.
In 2011, Xfm have given me the opportunity to deliver the music that I am so passionate about on a primetime platform. This is such a victory, not just for me, but for all the artists I believe in and all the live listeners who care so deeply. I’ll broadcasting from Manchester across the world at www.xfm.co.uk bringing future sound and guest mixes from the most forward thinking artists on earth. Dubstep, UK funky, minimal techno, deep house, hip hop, electronica, grime, neo-folk and art house rock… no holds barred.
Mary Anne will be sending Audio Postcards via XFM on her US Road Warrior Tour from April 13th
