Planet Rock has rejigged its evening schedule, a move which will see a number of the rock station’s weekend shows get midweek repeats.

Amongst the weekly programmes to get a second airing will be Al Murray’s Sunday morning show and Joe Elliott’s Saturday evening slot, both on a Tuesday; the new ‘Mojo Rocks’ programme fronted by Mojo Editor In Chief Phil Alexander on a Wednesday; and Bernard Doherty’s ‘Listomania’ and ‘My Planet Rocks’ on a Thursday.

Despite the increase in repeats in the station’s schedule, two new shows will be launched on Friday night in the form of ‘Friday Night Officially Rocks’ with Alex Baker and ‘Metal At Midnight’ with Johnny Doom.

The rejigs follow the acquisition of the rock radio service by Bauer Media earlier this year, and the launch of the digital station on FM in the Midlands last month. Nicky Horne, who previously filled the evening slot on Planet Rock, is jumping to new rival station TeamRock Radio.
