Absolute Radio has hired Skunk Anansie lead singer and songwriter Skin to host a new 10-part series.
During the programmes, which start in October, Skin will play the songs which have sound-tracked her life as well as the new music she’s listening to.
Speaking about joining Absolute Radio and her new show, Skin said “I’m really excited to be part of the team. It’s been a long-term dream of mine to have my own radio show, and this format is exactly the sort of thing I’ve always wanted to do.
“I have a lot of personal attachments to various songs. There’s a social and spiritual part of music that people don’t really talk about that much and in this series, I’ll be sharing what certain songs mean to me. Expect some funny stories and of course some brilliant music too – from classic tracks to new music, and even some electronic gems as well.”
Absolute Radio’s Content Director Paul Sylvester added “I’m thrilled that Skin is joining Absolute Radio. Not only is she an iconic performer, but she is an incredible storyteller and taste-maker. We’ve always enjoyed giving musicians the radio microphone to share their record collections and this series will be a must-listen for music fans.”
‘The Skin Show’ will broadcast on Absolute Radio on Sunday nights from 10pm till midnight and will be available on demand the next day. The ten-part series starts on Sunday 18th October.
