BBC Radio 6Music has announced a new Saturday morning show hosted by Edith Bowman and a returning Adam Buxton.

The Adam and Edith Show will run for seven weeks in the run-up to Christmas from November 17 from 10-1pm. 

"I'm a big fan of 6Music and what it stands for so I am really excited to be joining the team and to be working with Adam,” said Bowman.

“It's going to be incredible fun although I know I will have my work cut out trying to keep up with Adam's dance moves.

“It's also great to have two radio homes, with Radio 1 where I am continuing my Review Show and now 6,” she added.

Adam Buxton said, “I've missed being on the radio so I'm delighted 6Music have let me back into the Big British Castle for a few weeks albeit without Joe who is busy slaving in a dream factory somewhere. 

“To stop me from shrivelling up with loneliness Edith Bowman is going to join me which I'm very excited about as she's intelligent, professional, Scottish and a woman; qualities I value highly and in which Joe was almost entirely lacking. I just hope she doesn't mind occasional shouting and stupidity.”

Head of Programmes for BBC Radio 6 Music, James Stirling concluded: “BBC Radio 6 Music is all about sharing great alternative music with our audience. We've one musical foot in the past and one in the future and to do this you need passionate presenters with both a sense of humour and a desire to share record collections. 

“I'm happy to say both Adam and Edith have these attributes in abundance. They will fit brilliantly at the heart of our Saturday schedule.”
