Stuart Cable, mad hair and all, gets ready to present 'Cable TV'...

STEREOPHONICSdrummer STUART CABLEis to host his own BBC chat show – called ‘CABLE TV’.

The six-part series will feature acoustic performances from guest bands, Cable Cab – in which guests will be interviewed in the back of the drummer’s vintage 1970s New York cab, and Mabel Cable’s Words of Wisdom, starring Stuart’s mum live from her home in Cwmaman!

Howard Marks, The Bellrays and [a][/a] have been booked for the first show, which will be recorded at the Pop Factory studios in the Rhondda Valleys next week.


Stuart said: “It’s something I’ve wanted to do for a long time but never had the opportunity. It’s a bit nerve-racking, to be honest. I’ve been playing the drums for 14 years and it’s always easier to go on stage when you’re at the back – but now I’ll be in front of the cameras.”

The series will be broadcast on BBC Wales in September. Producers hope the show will be networked across the UK later in the year.
