BBC Radio 1 DJ Zane Lowe is hosting his last show on the station tonight and, ahead of it, musicians the world over are taking to social media to thank him for his work.
Zane will be moving to the US to join Apple in an unspecified role.
Couldn't have been more nervous taking over Zane's show last year because I hold it in such high regard and a huge honour. I also always got nervous in his interviews because he's such a legend (and the coolest music nerd I know). He introduced me to some of the best music in the world. A lot of his shows encapsulated my journey through music as a teen from rock and metal all the way to folk. Quite a few times he made me Hottest Record in the World and has supported me from the very beginning, and never cared about what genre my music was supposed to be or if it was "cool" he played it because he dug it. so THANK YOU ZANE will miss ya.

Zane helped launch the music careers of many of today's most popular artists. His ear for new music and eye for a star is going to be a huge asset at Apple as it looks toward a new, curated music streaming service.
His last shows starts tonight at 7pm GMT. I'll be listening.
