The final installment of IRON MAIDEN singer BRUCE DICKINSON's Friday Rock Show on BBC 6 in the UK will be next Friday, May 28th.
A show update reads: "It’s our last show, so aiming to go out with a bang Bruce spins some of his favourite top tunes - plus pays a personal tribute to RONNIE JAMES DIO."
The show airs from 9:00pm - 12:00am in the UK. Listeners outside the UK can tune-in online at this location between 4:00-7:00pm EST. If you are in the UK then you can listen on DAB Digital radio, on SKY and TV (SKY 0120, Freeview 707, Freesat 707, Virgin 909).
BBC recently to replace Dickinson with the son of the legendary DJ and new music champion John Peel, 30 year-old Tom Ravenscroft.
A BBC 6 Music spokeswoman stared in March about the change: “6 Music is currently reviewing the way it reflects the Rock/Heavy Metal genres across the network and has decided to decommission the Friday Night Rock Show. The network, however, remains committed to reflecting both genres throughout the schedule as part of its core music offering. We would very much like to thank Bruce Dickinson for the hard work and commitment he has shown to 6 Music over the past eight years.”
