After a holiday stint being a DJ for BBC, Iggy Pop will return to have a show at a regular time slot. He's taking over for Jarvis Cocker, who will do a year-long sabbatical.
"I had a great experience doing the shows for BBC Radio 6 Music over the holidays. To be honest, commerce, critics, crooks and creeps have conspired over time to knock the stuffing out of my soul as I become ever more removed from the joys of feeling music," Pop said.
"The act of revisiting my library and memories to share the tunes I have treasured with a radio audience has relit a flame for me. So I was kind of hoping the Beeb would ask me to do some more. So I guess I did alright, because I'm gonna. Watch out for me."
