Classic FM has announced the launch of a new podcast aimed at introducing children to the crazy world of classical music. Hosted by David Walliams, the ten episode series will launch next month.

“I’m incredibly happy to be working with Classic FM on a brand new venture, bringing the fascinating stories and the works of iconic composers to life, through fun and insightful storytelling”, says Walliams. “It’s wonderful to be able to bring a whole genre of music to a new generation of children, whilst getting the rest of the family listening and enjoying at the same time”.

Classic FM’s Managing Editor Sam Jackson adds: “As a father of four young children myself, I think it’s the perfect way to introduce the next generation to classical music – not to mention adults, too. It’s fun, it’s entertaining, it’s cheeky and we know it will attract many new listeners to enjoy what we at Classic FM proudly declare to be the world’s greatest music”.

‘David Walliams’ Marvellous Musical Podcast’ will be available to download for free from 4 Feb.
