Planet Rock, a commercial radio station playing rock music from the 70s to the present day, is set to change its name to Planet Zeppelin for the entire month of June to celebrate the re-issues of Led Zeppelin’s first three classic albums, plus companion disc.

The station will dedicate a series of special programming that incorporates a multi-platform strategy across on-air, online and social media with a two hour exclusive Jimmy Page ‘My Planet Rocks’ interview special to take centre stage. The interview with Jimmy Page will play on air on 1 June. Zeppelin’s new re-issues take over ‘Planet Rock Plays It In Full’ each Monday from 11pm throughout June.

Led Zeppelin cover versions will be played in DJ Wyatt’s ‘Cover Up’ show each week day just after 1pm and in an ongoing special named ‘Unlock the Led’ which will see Planet Rock play 100 different Zeppelin songs across the station’s output throughout the whole of June. To celebrate the end of Planet Zeppelin there will be a vote to find their best album of all time as voted by Planet Rock listeners.
