This weekend sees a takeover on the BBC6 Mix by the man I learn all my dance moves from – Radiohead’s Mr Thom Yorke. I am told by the BBC6 Music team that we should expect Thom (too informal?) to take us on a journey through his favourite tracks and that there will also be a few exclusive songs by Mr Yorke himself dropped in there too!
I asked Rowan Collinson from BBC6 Music how it was actually meeting Mr Thom Yorke himself:
“I was quite nervous meeting Thom, after all it’s not often you get to spend three hours with a major international musician, especially one who rarely does interviews or appears on radio. But as soon as we got talking about laptop DJ set ups (he prefers Serato over Traktor) and the genuis of Erykah Badu & J.Dilla all my fears disappeared. In person Thom is warm, witty and above all passionate about electronic music past, present & future. I think this passion and humour really comes out in his 6 Mix.”
The show starts at 8pm this Sunday (October 16) on BBC 6 Music…and it sounds like one not to be missed…! Here is a teaser of what to expect:
Will you be tuning in?
