Communicorp hires Rick Wakeman for Real XS shows

Yes keyboard player Rick Wakeman is to host a weekly show on Communicorp UK’s rock station Real XS.

The six week run starts Saturday 15th November when Rick will host six one hour long specials titled ‘Rick’s Place’ on Saturdays from 7pm. He’ll be sharing his memorable rock tales from his career spanning four decades.

Rick Wakeman said: “I’ve never understood why our wonderful general public seem to like my radio demeanour and yet it seems to terrify radio station bosses and Ofcom. One side has to be right and I am plumping for the general public. So this begs next question – is Real XS brave enough for Rick’s Place?”

Trevor White, Real XS programme director added: “We’re delighted to welcome Rick and ‘Rick’s Place’ to the Real XS schedule. Each week he’ll give us a glimpse into a world where one moment you’re rubbing shoulders with Brian May and Stephen Hawkins and then playing piano on Clive Dunn’s ‘Grandad or Bowie’s Hunky Dory. Just expect the unexpected.”
