Radio 6 Music to air Louis Theroux show

Documentary-maker Louis Theroux is to present a virtual musical tour of LA for a one off show on BBC Radio 6 Music.

Louis has lived in the city for the last year or so, and the programme includes songs from NWA, War and The Beach Boys. He opens the programme with People Are Strange by The Doors, joking it could almost serve as a manifesto for his career and view of the world.

Louis shares his love of hip-hop and rap and how this music had a big impact on him in his youth, with artists such as Tupac, Snoop Dogg and Cypress Hill. He reveals how going to a Stranglers gig with his parents damaged his relationship with their music and talks of his admiration for the music of Elliot Smith – with whom he had a rather awkward and embarrassing interview moment, and he goes intergalactic with The Carpenters.

This programme complements his current BBC Two series, Louis Theroux’s LA Stories. It will be broadcast on Monday 31 March, midnight – 2am.
