Avicii joins Capital FM

Man-child Avicii is to host his own show on Global Radio’s Capital FM, so that’s nice. The EDM Swede, real name Tim Bergling, will air a Saturday night mix once a month, part replacing ex-Capital weekend DJ Andi Durrant, who revealed he was leaving the station last week, apparently less than happy with its emphasis on chart hits.

Talking of which, it’s back to Avicii, who says: “I’m so excited to have a monthly show on Capital FM. Being able to spread the music that I love and give my UK fans an update on my everyday life on the road, exciting projects and new releases is truly amazing!”

Similarly amazed, Director Of Broadcasting at Global, Richard Park, adds: “Avicii is a world class DJ who is loved by our audience so we’re proud to have him on board to host his own show. He’ll be playing the hottest dance tracks and some of the biggest club remixes around to help to keep our listeners in the party mood on the weekends”.

Let’s hope it’s more successful than Akon’s tenure at the station.
