With Radio 1 recently introducing changes in its DJ lineup, favourites such as Fabio & Grooverider, Judge Jules and Peterson himself have had to move aside. Gilles Peterson announced last night that he would now be broadcasting through BBC 6 Music continuing hisWorldwideshow.

Peterson has been with Radio 1 for 13 years and in that time has pioneered the likes of Jamiroquai, The Roots, MJ Cole and Roni Size through his own record labels. Most recently, Peterson has supported and given initial exposure to artists such as Michael Kiwanuka, Little Dragon, Jamie xx and Caribou.

Gilles Peterson starts his new show from the 7th of April, with a weekly slot on Saturday 3pm-6pm. Get listening!
