Rod Stewart lands new radio show

Rod Stewart has scored a smooth new gig as a radio presenter.

The singer will front his own one hour show on Britain's smoothfm from 1 February (15).


Stewart, who is a regular on the network's playlist, says, "You’ve heard my singing voice many times on smoothfm, so I thought it was time I grabbed the mic so we could have a chat. I’m looking forward to hearing your smooth favorites and playing you some of mine."


Station boss Paul Jackson adds, "Rod Stewart is one of the greatest and most enduring artists of all time. He has created so many magical songs that our listeners associate with memorable moments in their lives, from Have I told You Lately to Maggie Mae and The First Cut Is The Deepest. We are delighted to have Rod host his own shows."


He isn't the first artist to take a break from recording and performing to host his own show on smoothfm - Michael Buble, Seal, Olivia Newton-John and Keith Urban have also played presenters.
