Iggy Pop replaces Jarvis Cocker at BBC Radio 6 Music
BBC Radio 6 Music has hired Iggy Pop to present a weekly programme from Sunday 16 March.
The show will broadcast between 16:00 and 18:00, replacing Jarvis Cocker's Sunday Service for the remainder of 2014 while Cocker is on a year-long sabbatical.
Pop is a singer-songwriter known as the 'Godfather of Punk'. His song credits include 'Lust for Life', 'The Passenger' and 'China Girl' which he co-wrote with David Bowie. He presented two specialist programmes for BBC Radio 6 Music at the end of last year.
The Iggy Pop Show is a joint production by BBC Radio 6 Music and Gimme Sugar Ltd, a content media company founded by former Absolute Radio presenter Ben Jones.
The Iggy Pop Show will be added to the FeaturesExec Media Database shortly.
