Steve Wright to host Queen countdown on BBC Radio 2 in April

BBC Radio 2 is asking listeners to vote for their favourite song by Queen to mark the 50th anniversary of the band’s first album.

The results of Your Ultimate Queen Song will be revealed in a countdown chart, hosted by Steve Wright on Monday 10 April at 4pm.

Steve Wright lined-up for a show on BBC Radio 2 in April could very well squash any rumours that Steve is heading to Greatest Hits Radio, in the next couple of months at least.

The shortlist of Queen songs will include all UK Top 75 hits, including collaborations with the band following Freddie Mercury’s death.

The voting is now open till March 8th.

Steve Wright says: “Can you remember when Queen had their first number one? I can: it was 1975 with Bohemian Rhapsody. I’d never heard anything quite like it before, so do now cast your votes and let’s find out What’s Your Ultimate Queen Song?”

Jeff Smith, Radio 2’s Head of Music, says: “We know Radio 2 listeners love the brilliant, timeless music of Queen, so we’re taking their biggest hits and creating a vote so that we can find out which of their classic songs our audiences loves the most. Steve Wright’s countdown on BBC Sounds and Radio 2 will be the perfect soundtrack whatever you’re doing over Easter!”
