I don’t know if, in the Spotify age, radio stations need to run shows where they play whole albums in full anymore, though I suppose there’s some of that all important ‘curation’ going on when said stations choose which albums to play, plus when Planet Rock does it over the next few weeks the artists behind the LPs will provide a little introduction.

The now Bauer-owned rock station, available digitally across the UK and on FM in the Midlands, will air ‘Planet Rock Plays It In Full’ every Monday night at 11pm from tonight. Over the next few weeks Jimmy Page will revisit Led Zeppelin’s ‘Led Zeppelin IV’, Meatloaf will chat about ‘Bat Out Of Hell’ and, tonight, Roger Waters talks about Pink Floyd’s ‘Dark Side Of The Moon’.

And the rock station promises that there’ll be no ads, jingles or other interruptions once the featured album starts playing.
