Cillian Murphy lands BBC radio gig

The Irish actor is a huge music lover


Cillian Murphy has landed his own show on BBC radio.

Taking over from Guy Garvey on BBC 6 Music, the Peaky Blinders actor will be hosting a series of shows on Sunday afternoons from next month.

In a statement, Cillian said: “As a music lover, mixtape obsessive and long-time 6 Music fan I couldn’t be more chuffed to be asked to sit in for Guy on his hiatus.”

“His show has been a constant companion for me and my family on Sunday afternoons for many years now, and it will be an honour to pick the tunes in that slot for a while.”

“6Music is the best radio station in the world and I look forward to becoming a temporary houseguest!”

Paul Rodgers, head of BBC Radio 6 Music, said: “We’re delighted Cillian will be joining 6 Music for the next few months.

“His music selections are always interesting and I think listeners will love hearing him on 6 Music on Sunday afternoons.”

Cillian will start his new BBC gig on March 3, and his show will air on Sundays from 2pm-4pm.
