February 13, 2008 at 5:38 AM (PT)
GCAP MEDIA Classical CLASSIC FM/LONDON has announced a revamped schedule that adds sister Top 40 CAPITAL 95.8/LONDON midday host MARGHERITA TAYLOR as host of the weekday early evening "SMOOTH CLASSICS AT SIX" show and flips midnight-2a to Jazz, filling the gap left by the demise of sister digital station THEJAZZ. THEJAZZ host HELEN MAYHEW will host the Jazz show weeknights, replacing LISA DUNCOMBE, and TIM LIHOREAU will host the show on weekends.
In addition, BLUR bassist ALEX JAMES will host a 100 part series, "THE A TO Z OF CLASSICAL MUSIC," at 11a SUNDAYS, and former BBC1 "CHANGING ROOMS" host LAURENCE LLEWELYN-BOWEN will take over SUNDAY mornings, replacing HENRY KELLY, who will move to 9p SUNDAYS in the spring. NICK BAILEY is taking over 2-6a from MARK GRIFFITHS, who departs the station.
The schedule changes will take effect FEBRUARY 25th.
