Dipps Bhamrah to leave BBC Asian Network

Written by

For the past 2 years I’ve been presenting Bhangra Breakdown on BBC Asian Network. For the past 7 years I have been a presenter on the station. With a heavy heart I have to let you know that in 3 weeks time i will be presenting the final Bhangra Breakdown and my final show on BBC Asian Network.

As we all know, BBC Asian Network is launching a new schedule which is to be an ambitious but tighter schedule. Unfortunately this means the loss of some shows and strands, including Bhangra Breakdown.

Asian Network still has a real commitment to UK and Bhangra music. Bhangra will continue to have a home on Sunday’s in the new Punjabi show which will launch later in the year. It is not the end for Bhangra music.

For me personally, Sunday 21st October 2012 will be my final broadcast on BBC Asian Network. Its something that i have known about for a while but have not been able to share until now. From presenting shows like The Mix, Weekend Punjabi & Bhangra Breakdown i have been able to do something that i wanted to do as a child….Entertain!Its going to be strange not going in on a Sunday because its been part of my life for the last 7 years but I guess i get on the flip side i get my weekends back!  My future? I can honestly say i don’t know. If i knew i would tell you but as it stands my last official broadcast will be in 3 weeks time.I want to take this opportunity to say a massive thank you to the BBC Asian Network for allowing the work experience tea boy of 1998 to become a presenter! It has been a pleasure to work on a station which i will always consider as my home.Finally, a genuine and from the heart thank you to all of you…the audience. Thank you for listening to me over the years. I hope that i have entertained you in my own unique way and that i have made some sort of impression on your world. It has been a joy, a pleasure and I trust me when i say that i promise to make my last 3 weeks on air something to remember!

Keep in touch! Maybe some day we’ll meet again & hear my ranting and raving voice through your radios all over again! Until then, whenever that may be, keep supporting the Asian Network, Bhangra music and God bless you all.
