Faithfull and Rodigan join BBC 6 Music

Sixties singer Marianne Faithfull and reggae DJ David Rodigan are to present four shows each for digital station BBC Radio 6 Music.

The programmes, titled ‘A Month of Sundays’, will feature music from their own record collections and will see them share their musical influences with the audience.

Rodigan is in the middle of a 13-week series for Radio 2 following his debut on the network last summer. He also won the Sony Gold for Best Specialist Music Programme at last month’s awards. The former Capital and Kiss DJ will do Sunday afternoons 4-6pm from 5th August on 6 Music. He said: “The four shows will celebrate Jamaica’s rich musical diversity stretching back over the past 50 years of independence and bring a distinctively cool, reggae one drop flavour to Sundays in August.”

Marianne Faithfull will host the four show before Rodigan, starting on Sunday 8th July in the same timeslot. She said: “I was honoured to be asked to present my own series of programmes for BBC Radio 6 Music, especially as I can indulge myself by playing some of my most favourite records across a variety of genres including jazz and blues.”

Paul Rodgers, Head of BBC Radio 6 Music, said: “It is fantastic to have such legendary talent sharing their expert knowledge and passion for music on A Month Of Sundays guaranteeing listeners an incredibly diverse musical experience.”

The shows fill the slot in the weekend schedule normally taken by Jarvis Cocker’s Sunday Service, which will be back on air on 6 Music on 8th September. 6 Music won the Station of the Year prize at last month’s Sony Radio Academy Awards.
