Tim Burgess will bring Tim’s Listening Party to Absolute Radio later this month.
The project became a vital link for music fans during the pandemic, with the Twitter-led listening parties encouraging us to bond over our shared loves. 100s of instalments have followed, from brand new artists through to Sir Paul McCartney, with Tim Burgess transforming the ever-popular series into two books.
Now Tim’s Listening Party is coming to a radio set near you. A brand new six-part series has been commissioned, broadcasting on Absolute Radio (it will also be available in podcast form).
Launching on March 26th, guests lined up include music greats The Kinks – who will talk about their collections album, ‘The Journey Part 1’ – and Fall Out Boy, who will walk fans through new album ‘So Much (For) Stardust’.
Tim Burgess says: “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.”
Tim’s Listening Party launches on March 26th through Absolute Radio.
