AceShowbiz - Snow Patrol frontman Gary Lightbody will explore his personal record collection for a new six-part series for a BBC radio show.
The "Gary Lightbody Show: All Things All at Once" will air on BBC Radio Ulster and will include personal stories as the chart-topping "Run" hitmaker reflects on the records that influenced him and explain what each song means to him.
"I've dreamt of having my own radio show since I was a teenager, but no one would give me one," he shared. "I'm very grateful to BBC Radio Ulster for the opportunity."
"I also realise that I've been given something that other DJs don't get - which is free rein to play whatever the heck I want."
He continued, "Loving music feels like a life's pursuit - and I've always wanted an opportunity to share my favourite songs on the radio. And you don't know what you've let yourself in for - 'cos my music taste is all over the place. It'll be a little mad musical journey through my brain."
The "Chasing Cars" star vowed to play music across a broad spectrum of genres, including "rock, metal (don't be frightened!), funk, soul, hip hop, dance music, folk and country... anything that takes my fancy at any given moment."
"If a song comes up you don't like, stick with me - the next one you'll love, I promise. Hopefully you'll enjoy the journey," he added.
The "Gary Lightbody Show: All Things All at Once" begins on BBC Radio Ulster and on BBC Sounds on June 14, 2020 at 4 P.M. BST.
