Tim Burgess brings Tim’s Listening Party to Absolute Radio

It became a sensation on Twitter, with musical guests including the likes of Paul McCartney, Michael Kiwanuka, Duran Duran’s Simon Le Bon and Kylie Minogue and now Tim’s Listening Party has found a new home on radio.

The concept, which is the brainchild of acclaimed solo artist and The Charlatans frontman Tim Burgess, will be brought to life in a brand-new audio format on Absolute Radio in association with Soho Studios Entertainment over six weeks, starting from Sunday 26th March.

Each week, Tim will be joined by a different guest as they share stories and insights from one of their seminal albums. Guests lined up for the show, which will be broadcast on Sunday evenings from 10pm-midnight, include The Kinks who will talk about their collections album, ‘The Journey Part 1’ and Fall Out Boy talking about forthcoming new album, ‘So Much (for) Stardust’ plus more to be announced.

Tim Burgess said “After three years online, it’s exciting to be bringing The Listening Party to the radio airwaves with Absolute Radio. We’ve got some ace albums and brilliant guests lined up”

Absolute Radio’s Content Director, Paul Sylvester said, “Tim’s Listening Party has become a phenomenon. Giving audiences the chance to listen to the music and conversation while engaging with other fans on social media ties everything together. It fits perfectly with Absolute Radio’s specialist and storytelling strategy, and we can’t wait to work with Tim to get the show on-air.”

The series will also be made available as a podcast, available from the Absolute Radio app and website, plus wherever else you get your podcasts.
