Blur's Dave Rowntree to host his own radio show
The drummer will host a weekly show on XFM starting tonight (January 9)
The drummer will host an hour-long weekly slot each Thursday between 9pm to 10pm on XFM. According to a statement, he will play an "eclectic selection of music alongside some incredible stories about his outstanding music career".
"I'm incredibly excited at the prospect of having my own show on XFM," he said. "The station is known for its quality music and comedy, and for gambling its future on untried, untrusted and usually unwashed presenters. I'm genuinely humbled to be part of that tradition."
Alongside his career with Blur, Rowntree has been training to be a solicitor and in 2010 ran for Parliament in the Cities of London and Westminster constituency.
Last summer (2013), Damon Albarn reportedly confirmed that Blur will record a new album following the release of his own forthcoming solo LP.
