Logan Sama to cover Sian Anderson’s 1xtra show through til February
1xtra recently announced that during Sian Anderson's three month maternity leave, Logan Sama would be graduating from his SixtyMinutes residency to deputising the 3 hour weekly show.
You can catch Logan on 1xtra from November 18th between 10pm and 1am playing the best in Grime music right through until February.
Logan said "I'm excited to be back broadcasting again and the challenge of keeping Sian's show warm for her while she is away definitely is one I want to rise to. She's set such high standards with her show and that's all the incentive I need. I'm going to be bringing three hours of Grime to 1xtra every week and that means live sets, legendary MCs, historic moments, future stars, innovative producers, great guest mixes and of course all the biggest tracks right now. So I'll see you there on Wednesday nights!"
This also means that Logan's residency on MistaJam's SixtyMinutes comes to an end but you can look forward to 6 times the Grime from Logan instead!
