Simon Mayo will be playing some pop music again on the radio airwaves by joining Bauer Media’s Greatest Hits Radio for a weekly show dedicated to albums. Since departing the BBC, Mayo has been presenting a show on Bauer’s classical station Scala Radio.

The media firm says that the new weekly programme “will celebrate the good times and great memories albums represent and will play their greatest hits alongside rediscovering musical gems within iconic albums”.

Mayo himself says: “Three hours of great album music will be a Sunday treat for me. I hope it will reconnect you to a time when your album collection was the most important thing in your life. It said who you were. By the time we come off-air, you’ll want to listen to them all again!”

Meanwhile Content Director at Greatest Hits Radio, Andy Ashton, adds: “It’s incredibly exciting that Simon Mayo is joining our already world class line-up as the network expands across the UK. Greatest Hits Radio is all about the music, and we can’t wait to hear Simon sharing his passion for albums and all the greatest hits they hold with our audience”.

The new Mayo show will air each Sunday afternoon from 6 Sep.
