On Monday June 5 6 Music, the UK’s most listened to digital radio station, with a weekly audience of 2.5m, will launch two brand new shows – New Music Fix Daily and Riley & Coe – with music and conversation at the core.

New Music Fix Daily will be dedicated entirely to new releases – the best of what is being made, performed and shared right now. Broadcast live from Salford, the programme will be presented by Tom Ravenscroft and Deb Grant, who will hand-pick and share their latest new music obsessions. Expect songs from any genre and from across the globe, as well as special guests, guest mixes and good company.

The pair will be a familiar pairing to listeners, having previously presented Mercury Prize and 6 Music Festival specials together. Ravenscroft has been a member of the 6 Music presenting family since 2010, and currently presents a weekly show on Fridays as well as his New Music Fix show. Deb has regularly deputised for Chris Hawkins, Gideon Coe and Now Playing on 6 Music.

Riley & Coe will see two of the station’s finest curators, Marc Riley and Gideon Coe, come together to play their music loves from every era and genre. Listeners will have the chance to get lost in their incredible record collections, recommendations and stories over the course of the week. On Mondays, Marc Riley will present his own show, featuring classic and cutting-edge tunes.

On Tuesdays and Wednesdays, the two presenters unite to share their treasured tracks and musical knowledge with the 6 Music listeners. On Thursdays, Gideon will present his own show, featuring as many records as he can manage. Across the week, expect artists in session, as well as recorded-live performances from the BBC Archive for listeners to enjoy too.

Samantha Moy, Head of 6 Music, says: “A love of music unites all of our 6 Music presenters. And bringing Marc & Gid and Tom & Deb together means even more music will be found and shared with our audience, giving a new sound to 6 Music at night.”

New Music Fix Daily will broadcast from Monday – Thursday, 7pm-9pm. Riley & Coe will air Monday – Thursday, 10pm-12am. Both shows will be broadcast from Salford, where BBC Radio 6 Music is increasing its presence as part of the BBC’s Across the UK plans, and will also be available on BBC Sounds.
