Looks like a shake-up on Radio 2; after many years Paul Jones is stepping down as the regular Blues Show presenter.
From Radio 2’s blog page:-
Cerys Matthews joins the Radio 2 fold when she takes over the Blues Show from Paul Jones who is leaving the network after many years as the regular host. I’d like to wish Paul the very best and thank him for igniting and then keeping the Blues flame alive on Radio 2 for many years. Cerys is an expert music curator, with a genuine and deep passion for Blues music (not to mention a vinyl collection that runs into the thousands), and I’m sure she’ll bring a new twist to our Blues programming, with a few surprises thrown in. We look forward very much to welcoming her to this programme, which will be presented live in its new slot of 8pm–9pm on Monday evenings.

I’m sure we all wish Paul well and thank him for keeping the flame burning while at the same time look forward to what Cerys brings to the genre.

It would be great if Cerys brings more people to the table

Well if nothing else its going to be interesting times….. Would be nice to see/hear some fresh sounds, but then you know what the “old guard” are like. Mind you, the “Cardiff Klaxon” wasn’t a name I was expecting in the frame

Hand on heart though; it won’t change my listening…....
