Blur’s Drummer Dave Rowntree to Join Xfm
Blur drummer Dave Rowntree will host his own one-hour Thursday night show from today on Global Radio’s Xfm.
Broadcasting across the UK each Thursday from 9-10pm, Rowntree will delve into his personal record collection alongside sharing stories about his career in music.
He said of the appointment: “I’m incredibly excited at the prospect of having my own show on Xfm. The station is known for its quality music and comedy, and for gambling its future on untried, untrusted and usually unwashed presenters. I’m genuinely humbled to be part of that tradition.”
Xfm managing editor, Chris Baughen commented: “Dave has pretty much seen, done and won everything when it comes to music. In addition to this, he’s a natural born presenter who I’m sure will become a firm favourite with the Xfm audience by the end of his first link.”
In the latest industry results by RAJAR, Xfm attracts an audience of 963,000* listeners across the UK each week.
