In his 12 years as one of the station’s key presenters, Zane has championed new music, and his passionate and enthusiastic style has captivated millions of listeners.

In interviews he's convinced everyone from Eminem and Jay Z to Florence Welch open up, and just last week, Kanye West broke down in tears during a chat with the DJ.

Now, the likes of The 1975, Foals, Chvrches and Jamie T have taken to Twitter to bid the DJ farewell.

#ThanksZane!

Zane Lowe’s last show airs on Thursday 5 February, at 7pm. You can listen again later here.
