Skunk Anansie’s Skin joins Absolute Radio for new 10-part series

Absolute Radio is proud to announce today that Skunk Anansie lead singer and songwriter, Skin is to join the station in October. The frontwoman of the iconic British rock band is to host a new 10-part series in which she plays the songs which have sound-tracked her life as well as the new music she’s listening to.

Sharing stories from years of touring, working in the music industry and beyond, the show promises to offer music fans a unique and personal insight into the life one of British rock music’s most influential figures.

Speaking about joining Absolute Radio and her new show, Skin said “I’m really excited to be part of the team. It’s been a long-term dream of mine to have my own radio show, and this format is exactly the sort of thing I’ve always wanted to do.

“I have a lot of personal attachments to various songs. There’s a social and spiritual part of music that people don’t really talk about that much and in this series, I’ll be sharing what certain songs mean to me. Expect some funny stories and of course some brilliant music too – from classic tracks to new music, and even some electronic gems as well.”

Absolute Radio’s Content Director Paul Sylvester said “I’m thrilled that Skin is joining Absolute Radio. Not only is she an iconic performer, but she is an incredible storyteller and taste-maker. We’ve always enjoyed giving musicians the radio microphone to share their record collections and this series will be a must-listen for music fans.”

‘The Skin Show’ will broadcast on Absolute Radio on Sunday nights from 10pm-12am and will be available on demand the next day. The ten-part series starts on Sunday 18th October.
