Radiohead to be radio heads - Radiohead - Radio 6
Radiohead will run the BBC's DAB radio station 6 Music for a week at Christmas. The band will choose music, select shows, co-present programmes and contribute website material from 22-28 December 2003.
All five band members will have access to the BBC archive containing rare songs, documentaries and hidden gems. Programme editor John Sugar said, "It will be exciting for our listeners to see what Radiohead do with this creative freedom."
Under the heading The 6 Music Selector, each Radiohead selection will be presented by a band member. Mr Sugar said the digital music channel was delighted to work with the band, all of whom are "huge music enthusiasts".
With around 1200 pages of data and over 7000 artists in the archive, he said Radiohead's selections would give an insight into their tastes and influences.
