UK RADIO NEWS: REGGAE DJ DAVID RODIGAN JOINS BBC 1XTRA

Reggae DJ David Rodigan MBE has announced via Twitter that he has joined BBC 1xtra.

In November 2012 Rodigan resigned as KISS FM after 22 years of service at the station.

After handing in his resignation Rodigan said in a statement:

Due to their continued marginalisation of reggae music into the twilight zone of radio scheduling, it has left me no option but to make a stand for my passion and the music I love so dearly.”

Well.. well… it didn’t take Rodigan long to find a new home on the airwaves did it?

DJ Robbo Ranx better watch his back (hahaha) #Justsaying

Usually when a DJ leaves a radio station or is kicked to the curb like a dusty old rag doll, it takes up to 3 years before BBC 1xtra’s competitor Choice FM comes to their rescue with a mysteriously vacated time slot.

Anyway I said at the time that old Rodigan here wouldn’t be away from the airwaves for long.

Congratulations.

  1. Wow! that was certainly quick.

    Congrats but I got say it kinda of means that young talent can’t get a look in. I mean you’ve got Tim Westwood whose wrong side of 50 and Trevor nelson due to hit half century this year still on primetime radio station now Rodigan too. Hardly the cut edge “youth” oriented radio station that 1Xtra was supposed to be, is it.
