Blur's Dave Rowntree has spoken out about his new weekly radio show, which started last month on XFM.

The drummer hosts an hour-long weekly slot each Thursday between 9pm to 10pm on XFM. Talking about the show in a new interview with the Independent, Rowntree has said that it "is the highlight of my week."

Rowntree refused to comment on the rumours of a new Blur album, saying: "Ah, I can't really give you the whole Blur thing in the context of this interview, I'm afraid. You have to go through other channels." However, last summer, Damon Albarn reportedly confirmed that Blur will record a new album following the release of his own forthcoming solo LP, 'Everyday Robots', which is due out on April 28.

Rowntree's first show for XFM saw him playing tracks by John Lennon, Elbow and The Polyphonic Spree and discussing the planet Mars. "I enjoyed doing it enormously," he told The Independent.
