This week, Fermanagh-based Country singer/songwriter Nathan Carter is sitting in for Hugo Duncan next week on his popular BBC Radio Ulster daytime programme.

Hugo is taking a well-earned break, so Nathan will be in the hot seat from Monday to Friday from 1.30-3pm taking listeners’ requests and dedications and playing plenty of cracking Country tunes.

Chatting on air with Hugo last Thursday afternoon (April 22), Nathan said: “This is my first time ever presenting a radio programme, so I am really looking forward to sitting in for Hugo and to hearing from everyone out there.

“Hugo has been giving me plenty of help and advice, so please be sure to tune in and get in touch with us during the week.”

Hugo said: “I am leaving the programme in the good hands of Nathan next week, but I have reminded him to listen to ‘the wee woman with the big stick’, and to keep my seat warm for me, as I will be back on air on May 3.”

The Hugo Duncan Show is also available on BBC Sounds.
