According to digiguide POTPs is on from 1 till 4 starting next saturday ,with Dermot reduced to 2 hours. Is this a mistake or for real? Good news if true!

Radio 2 site listings seem to confirm it.. http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio2/programm...les/2012/05/05

Fantastic news! it sure has been extended next week promotes 3 Top 20 Charts 1965, 1974 and 1984.

So my listening for Saturdays will be Casey Kasem on AT40 the 70s on Smooth 70s from 0900-1200 then POTP from 1300-1600 followed on Sundays by Kid Jensen Double Top 20 from 1800-2000.

I just love the classic countdown shows.

It's just for one week only. There is a thread already open.

As Darnall42 says above, tune in to KOLA 99.9 and hear at least an hour of AT40 the 80's, midday until four
