After 35+ years with Melbourne's 3RRR FM, Stephen ‘The Ghost’ Walker has announce he'll be handing over the reigns of his Friday afternoon show to a new host.

Woody McDonald will now host the Friday afternoon show, dubbed The Cave as an honour to Walker's Skull Cave show.

"The Skull Cave is no more. Welcome to The Cave with your new host Woody. He has sworn an oath on my skull to continue the musical adventure, as the nemesis of mediocre radio everywhere. He won't work alone; I will continue to contribute on a random, irregular basis."

Fans have been fast to share their praise and thanks to Walker via 3RRR FM's Twitter page. You can listen to the full announcement here.
