Iggy Pop To Host New BBC Radio Show

Iggy Pop is set to hit the radio airwaves, as the maniacal singer is set to host a new BBC 6 Music Show.

It has been confirmed that Pop will return to the station after a successful stint over the Christmas holiday and will take over the 4pm-6pm slot on Sundays while Jarvis Cocker continues his year-long sabbatical from the station.

"I had a great experience doing the shows for BBC Radio 6 Music over the holidays," Pop said in a statement. "The act of revisiting my library and memories to share the tunes I have treasured with a radio audience has relit a flame for me. So I was kind of hoping the Beeb would ask me to do some more. So I guess I did alright, because I'm gonna. Watch out for me."

BBC 6 Music's Bob Shennen added: "BBC Radio 6 Music is incredibly proud to welcome Iggy Pop to the network, an artist who is renowned the world over for breaking the rules and providing an alternative soundtrack to people's lives. I'd like to welcome him to Sunday afternoons on 6 Music, where he will be a valuable and hugely exciting addition to the Station's array of trusted music guides."
