Kaiser Chiefs frontman Ricky Wilson will host two shows on BBC Radio 6 Music about the role music has played in his life and upbringing.

Wilson will chat to producer Stephen Street, who worked on Kaiser Chiefs' 2005 debut album 'Employment' as well as several albums by both Blur and The Smiths. He will also speak to producer Ben H Allen III. The first show will be broadcast between 1-2pm on March 23, with the second show following in the same slot one week later.

A press release states that Wilson will highlight songs from his childhood and tracks which influenced Kaiser Chiefs as well as new bands he is excited about with Jagwar Ma, The Flaming Lips, Arthur Russell, Television, Martha Reeves, Animal Collective and Fat White Family all mentioned. "I'm an avid listener of 6 Music – especially on Sunday afternoons," says Wilson. "I love playing records and talking to people so I’m really looking forward to this opportunity to make radio on the weekend."

Meanwhile, it was recently announced that Kaiser Chiefs and Bill Nighy have teamed up on a modern day war poem. Inspired by the First World War centenary, 'The Occupation' features on the Leeds band's forthcoming new album, 'Education, Education, Education And War.'
