The home of guitar music on Radio 1 is shutting its doors for the final time later this year.

The Evening Session will go off air in December and bosses have said they are already excited about the new show.

Change is to keep things "fresh"

They haven't revealed anything about it yet, but the bosses did say the changes were being made to keep the schedule "fresh and relevant to the audience".

The show helped Oasis loads
The Evening Session has been on air since 1991 but found fame during the 90s when DJs Steve Lamacq and Jo Whiley helped bands like Blur and Oasis make their names.

More recently the show has helped new bands like Idlewild, Doves, The Vines and The Music find chart success.

Current show host Lamacq will still present his Lamacq Live show on Monday evenings.
