Martin Freeman and Rob Delaney join BBC Radio 6 Music


Rob Delaney and Martin Freeman are to join BBC Radio 6 Music for a run of Sunday afternoon shows.

They will be hosting their own shows, covering Guy Garvey’s 2-4pm slot whilst he is on an extended break working on his next album.

Cillian Murphy has been presenting the show since March, with his final programme on June 2nd.

Delaney, best known as the co-star and co-writer of Bafta-winning TV series Catastrophe, said: “I’m thrilled to be presenting on BBC Radio 6 Music. Whether you listen to music while you make dinner, widgets or perhaps even love, I hope you’ll do so to my powerful rhythms.”

Delaney will be on air from June 9th to July 7th, with Freeman presenting from July 14th to August 4th. The shows will also be available on BBC Sounds.

Freeman, known for roles including Tim in The Office, Dr Watson in Sherlock and Bilbo Baggins in The Hobbit film trilogy, last year presented two specials on the network – Paul Weller At 60 and 6 Music Celebrates The White Album.

Paul Rodgers, Head of 6 Music, said: “Rob Delaney and Martin Freeman are both fantastic talents so I’m delighted they will be joining 6 Music, where they can bring their love of music to our Sunday afternoons. I’d like to thank Cillian Murphy, who has done a great job sitting in for Guy Garvey since since March – listeners have loved tuning in to him.”
