WIGAN DJ Stuart Maconie has spoken about working on digital radio channel Music 6 on its tenth anniversary.

The former Worsley Mesnes resident told The Radio Times the station was a success and hoped to remain there another 10 years.

He said: “It doesn’t seem a decade since I was waiting my turn to have our promo pictures done for the BBC’s first new music network in a generation.

“Looking back, there have been many highlights.

“Recently Paul McCartney was a guest on our afternoon berth and told me he was a fan.

“Knowing that the likes of Johnny Marr, and James Dean Bradfield of Manic Street Preachers, are avid listeners of my weekend Freak Zone makes me rosy-cheeked with pride.

“I hope they’ll still have me on 6 in 2022.”
