Cat and Nick will hit the airwaves with The Breakfast Spread every weekday morning between 6am and 9am from Wednesday January 27.

Congratulations to Nick, and from all at PBS a sincere and heartfelt thanks to Crispi Winsor for the last five years of incredible breakfast radio.

There are a few other changes on PBS that will also take effect over the summer months.

From Monday January 25, DJ JNett moves her program Are You Ready? into the 9 to 11am slot following the departure of Campbell McNolty’s Bop Gun. Listeners can expect two hours of sweet beats, electro-grooves and galactic rhythms to start the working week.

After ten years of 2am starts PBS’ most colourful free-thinker Paul Kidney moves his freak-out free jazz program Ear of the Behearer into a weekly slot every Monday night at midnight. Paul’s aural adventures will kick off in his new time-slot on Monday December 28.

With both Nick and Paul being promoted out of their ‘insomnia’ shifts we are able to welcome two newcomers to PBS.

On alternate Friday mornings between 2am and 6am Elle Young will serve up the best of calypso, carribbean, mento and more on her program Tropicalia, while Michael O’Shea further enhances PBS’ reputation for covering experimental and abstract music with Tales From the Other Side every alternate Monday morning from 2am.

Finally, we’re sad to say farewell this month to Perry Holt and his outstanding program of ambient music In The Quiet. PBS will be presenting a series of appropriate music programs on Sundays from 10pm and announcing a permanent replacement early in 2016.

Congratulations to Nick, JNett, Paul, Elle and Michael and sincere thanks to Crispi, Campbell and Perry for their incredible contribution to PBS.
