Stage women to host shows on BBC Radio 2

BBC Radio 2 is to broadcast a number of programmes fronted by international females from the world of music and stage.

Carla Bruni, Ana Matronic and Sheila Hancock will join the network over the next five weeks giving a personal look into specialist music genres, whilst a two hour documentary will also air recorded with Dolly Parton.

Singer-songwriter and model Carla Bruni presents a three part series, taking listeners on a tour of Paris and sharing her favourite French chansons in Carla Bruni’s Postcards from Paris on Thursday 15 May, 10pm-11pm.

Scissor Sister Ana Matronic presents a four-part series which sees her delve into her record collection to bring listeners an hour of disco songs, starting on Wednesday 16 April, 10-11pm.

Sheila Hancock will share music that makes listeners think in Sheila Hancock’s Music with a Message on Monday 5 May, 10pm-11pm.

And Dolly Parton presents Dolly’s Jukebox on Monday 21 April, 8-10pm, recorded with journalist Paul Sexton who travelled to Nashville to interview the singer.

“When I get a chance to sit down and listen to music, I just love to pick out some of those old albums,” she says in the programme. “Music is still number one with me. I love that I can make a living, but it’s not the money. I love to work.”

Bob Shennan, Controller BBC Radio 2, 6 Music, Asian Network and Director of BBC Music said: “These shows are presented by some truly wonderful names. They will give a fascinating in-depth and personal look into these specialist music genres as only Radio 2 can.”
