A RADIO station has axed a Saturday morning show causing uproar from listeners.

On Saturday, Alex Dyke, announced on social media that he would no longer be hosting his Saturday morning show on BBC Radio Solent.

Up until now listeners tuned in to listen to music from the Beatles, the Hollies, the Monkees, Sweet, Slade, T.Rex and many others, but now the slot is set to be filled with a segment named “Clued Up”, presented by Lucy Ambache.

The presenter says he is moving to night time radio on Saturday’s and Sunday’s with the new Saturday morning programme set to begin on May 22.

In a social media post, Mr Dyke said: “I’ve loved presenting the Saturday Morning show.

“It’s been a huge part of my life for the last 11 years and I would like to thank the BBC for giving me the opportunity to program all the music and together with you guys build a wonderful feel good radio show just right for a Saturday morning.”

This comes less than a year after the presenters Wall of Sound show was also axed from Radio Solent and has caused uproar from listeners with some claiming they would stop tuning in at all.

One listener, Ruth Baggins, said: “Dreadful news. Sadly I won’t be listening on Saturday mornings anymore, apart from through the iplayer to hear your late night show.”

Another, Liz Howard, said: “What on earth are the BBC doing? Four hours of Lucy Ambash on Saturday mornings? How dull! We are going to miss you so much on Saturday mornings.”

But a BBC spokesperson said: “Alex will be presenting three programmes a week, including two that are broadcast on all our other stations in the region.

“The small number of people who have expressed concern about this change should be reassured Alex is still a big part of our schedule and looking forward to a new challenge.”

The presenter previously made controversial comments in 2015, when he shared his dislike of breastfeeding in public, calling it “unnatural”.
