Kerrang! Radio hires an actual real dog!

Kerrang! Radio’s newest addition to its schedule is a black Labrador dog, who joins the station to host a weekly rock show.

Rockdog will showcase an hour of the biggest rock anthems every Sunday afternoon and will ‘interview’ celebrity guests at the studios of the West Midlands based barking mad rock station.

“People seem to be having trouble believing us but it really is a dog. Like, an actual dog” said Programme Director James Walshe. “It’s a programme for people who love rock music. And dogs”.

The programme is in partnership with Guide Dogs, a service that transforms the lives of thousands of blind and partially sighted people every year.

Rockdog has been signed for an undisclosed sum but it is understood to involve a tin of dog food and a regular pat on the head. His first programme is this Sunday at 5pm. Have a listen to a sneak peak below.
