Blur’s Dave Rowntree is the latest addition to Xfm’s line-up of specialist hosts. The drummer will present a new one hour show each Thursday night, starting tonight at 9pm.

Announcing the news, Rowntree said: “I’m incredibly excited at the prospect of having my own show on Xfm. The station is known for its quality music and comedy, and for gambling its future on untried, untrusted and usually unwashed presenters. I’m genuinely humbled to be part of that tradition”.

Managing Editor at Xfm, Chris Baughen, added: “Dave has pretty much seen, done and won everything when it comes to music. In addition to this, he’s a natural born presenter who I’m sure will become a firm favourite with the Xfm audience by the end of his first link”.
