Absolute Radio hands over output to artists
Absolute Radio is launching a new series of Saturday night shows hosted by a number of musicians.
The 10pm slot will be hosted by Suede’s Brett Anderson, (5th Feb) Simple Minds’ Jim Kerr, (13th, 20th,27th Feb and 5th March) and Primal Scream’s Bobby Gillespie (12th and 19th March).
The Bauer station says they’ll have total artistic freedom as they choose the music, tell the stories behind the songs, invite their own guests and bring in their instruments to jam on air.
Noel Gallagher will also be hosting a one-off show, with comedian Matt Morgan, on Monday 15th February 9-11pm.
The shows are celebrating Absolute Radio’s Real Music Matters Campaign.
Jim Kerr said “From the early days right up to the current! Please listen in to my show on Absolute Radio as I play and talk passionately about the music and artists that have entertained and influenced me through the ages.”
