RADIOHEAD will be mixing a live set on RADIO 1 in December, NME.COM can announce.
The band will be mixing a show for Radio 1’s midnight Breezeblock show on December 11.
Radiohead will be mixing the records at home in Oxford for Mary-Anne Hobbs’s eclectic programme, transmitting the live mix via ISDN line to the BBC.
Radiohead have already had plenty of practice mixing shows – prior to the release of ‘Kid A’ they played three unannounced webcasts which included songs by artists as diverse as The Fall, John Barry and Squarepusher.
