Si King and Dave Myers, aka The Hairy Bikers, have signed up with Planet Rock for a new Sunday mornings show whilst Al Murray takes a break.
They’ll be on air for seven shows starting March 29th with The Hairy Rock Show.
Planet Rock has also hired Thunder front man Danny Bowes for a brand new Sunday evening show at the station from 5pm till 7pm starting April 12th. Station owner Bauer Media tells us both slots are available for Sponsorship opportunities.
Music and Content Director for Planet Rock, Ric Blaxill said “The Hairy Bikers are national treasures and we can’t wait to let them loose on-air to share their passion for food as well as their vast knowledge of rock music, a powerful combination and who better than Si and Dave to launch it on radio. Danny Bowes is adored by Planet Rock listeners, he’s funny, he’s engaging, passionate about music and his band Thunder are fresh off the back of a Top 10 album already this year. Danny will draw on his unique insights from an amazing career spanning 25 years and counting as each week he shares his stories, influences and experiences as a rock musician.”
Al Murray will return from his election campaign to continue his Defender of the Planet Rock Tradition show on Sunday mornings from 10-12am from May 17th.
