Absolute Radio to remember Jon Brookes

Absolute Radio is to dedicate a week of programming on Pete Donaldson’s evening show to The Charlatans charity gig in memory of the band’s former drummer, Jon Brookes.

All next week, Pete Donaldson will play music and interview highlights each night. The audio will be recorded from the special Royal Albert Hall show a few days before with proceeds going to The Brain Tumour Charity.

Brookes passed away three years after being diagnosed with a brain tumour having been with the band since they formed in 1989.

Listeners will have another chance to hear tracks and interviews on Pete Mitchell’s ‘Saturday Social’ on Saturday 26th October and there will also be a one hour special built around all live recordings and interviews on Absolute Radio 90s at 8pm on Thursday 24 October.

Tim Burgess and Mark Collins from The Charlatans performed for Absolute Radio in a stripped down acoustic Isle of Wight Festival 2012 warm-up gig on Spitbank Fort, a former Napoleonic property dating back to 1870 situated a mile offshore from Portsmouth Harbour, accessible only by boat and completely surrounded by water.
