New series (imported from American radio) where Bruce plays his favourite records. Starts Saturday 25th July

Sounds Of Summer Reggae Playlist with Levi Roots (8-9pm, Saturday 25 July)
Levi Roots plays "sunshine music" including Bob Marley, Shaggy and Sean Paul. Not for me...

4-part series where Keith plays "a carefully curated selection of the best contemporary and classic music thatís moved and inspired him"

My Life In A Mix Tape (from Saturday 15 August)
A new strand for Radio 2, apparently, in which celebrities pick some of their favourite tunes and reveal the stories behind them and why they mean so much to their lives. Starting with Keeley Hawes and Emilia Clarke. This sounds familiar!
