Iggy Pop to present Christmas shows

Iggy Pop is delving back into his record collection for two festive shows on BBC Radio 6 Music this Christmas.

The rocker, whose raucous records and no-holds barred live shows with The Stooges were a huge influence on punk and new wave acts, will present a two-hour show on Christmas Day and another on New Year's Day.

They will be based on themes of rocking rebels and heartbreak and heartaches respectively.

Iggy said: " To come up with the tunes that fit the concept of each show, I've had to dig back to things that I haven't heard in a long, long time, but that still carry memories of joy and compulsion. I thought I better check these old numbers to see if they still made the grade for me. They still do.

" I was a little worried that the listening might feel ragged for the kind of people who can't embrace Duane Eddy and, say, The Last Poets in the same hour with Doc Watson. Well, that's too damn bad. I've listened to all this music for the shows and it all flows for me. I hope to reach out and touch you."

The station's Christmas line-up also includes an interview with Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich and a special show with Mick Jones and Paul Simonon lifting the lid on some of the stories behind their songs.

Paul Rodgers, head of programmes for 6 Music, said: "Iggy Pop, Paul Simonon, Mick Jones and Lars Ulrich are fascinating characters and have recorded some great shows, with a wide range of eclectic and exciting music choices which could only be heard on a station like BBC Radio 6 Music, and we hope they will delight our listeners over the festive period."
