Last night the R&B king of the radio in the UK, Ronnie Herel had his last show on BBC Radio 1Xtra. I was tuned in from the states and it was an emotional listen.

Ronnie has been on 1Xtra since the beginning of the station 10 years ago, to have a show on the same staion for 10 years is a big deal and it shows how much Ronnie has been respected within the R&B community.

I had the honour of meeting Ronnie a number of times during my short time at the station and he was a great guy, he knew his music so well and he showed so much passion for the music he plays. I also had the honour of filling his shoes for the 1Xtra chart show on 2 occasions when he used to present that back in 2010.

Make sure you listen back on the BBC iPlayer to Ronnie’s last show for 3 hours of amazing R&B both old and new plus a whole load of special UK guests too.

Big up to CJ Beatz who will take over Ronnie’s show in 2 weeks with a new time of 10pm-2am. I cannot wait to hear that as CJ already has a SICK mix show on the network.
