The BBC Asian Network is following in the footsteps of sister station, BBC Radio 1 by moving its weekly chart show to Friday afternoons.
Starting from 14th May, Yasser will take on the new ‘Drive Time’ slot on the BBC Asian Network. It will air weekdays at 16:00 – 19:00, with the ‘Official Asian Music Chart’ being aired on Fridays as a part of Yasser’s show.
Yasser says, “It’s an honour to be hosting the infamous drive time slot on the BBC Asian Network. I’ve been an avid listener for years and it’s a dream come true to be hosting such a big show. It’s an exciting time for the network and I can’t wait to get stuck in.”
The chart show currently airs on Saturday afternoons, which will from May be used for AJD’s new Saturday afternoon show between 16:00 – 19:00.
