Status Quo man for Planet Rock

Status Quo frontman Francis Rossi is joining digital radio station Planet Rock to host a weekly show from next month.

He'll play music that's inspired him over the years with stories from four decades touring as a rockstar.

Francis will be on Sunday evenings 6-7pm and told us: "Over the years I've been in hundreds of radio stations but nobody has ever asked me to have a go myself. This time the only person cracking terrible jokes and missing their cues will be me."

The station's Programme Director Trevor White added: "Planet Rock has always brought rock’s greatest artists to the airwaves, giving a rock star’s perspective to life on the road, in the studio and to hear stories never heard on radio before. Francis has something to say about everyone and everything, the trouble is stopping him…. and his choice of music makes the show a must listen."
