Noel Gallagher to present on Absolute Radio

Fresh from his first go at being a radio presenter on Radio 2 this month, Noel Gallagher is to co-present Absolute Radio’s breakfast show for a day next month.

The former Oasis star will join Christian O’Connell at the controls on 14 October.

Noel covered for Dermot O’Leary on Radio 2 on 10 September. He’s currently preparing for the release of his debut solo album ‘Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds’, but has said he wants to take a day off and spend it with Christian and the breakfast show team at Absolute.

Christian O’Connell said “Noel is a legend – plain and simple. He’s been in the business for 20 years and there’s nothing he doesn’t know about making records. That said, he knows bugger-all about being a DJ so I’m going to get the bleeper machine ready and throw him in at the deep end to see what he’s made of. Who knows, if it works out I could be his new wing-man – I hear the last guy didn’t work out so well.”
