McCartney becomes BBC Radio DJ.

The headline of this post is a little misleading.  It’s not like Paul will be hosting a radio show oh his own like Bob Dylan on satellite radio.  Now that would be something wouldn’t it.

No, it seems that Paul will be hosting one episode in a series.  It is a birthday celebration for the BBC radio.  It’ll be kind of cool to hear Paul play some records and talk about the ones that are important to him.  I know we’ve heard a lot of those stories before, but this will be neat to hear.

Maybe he’ll bring a guitar along and play something on the air for us.  Some kind of exclusive thing. 

Here’s what we’ve read.

 Sir Paul McCartney and Ozzy Osbourne will DJ on BBC Radio 1 to mark the station’s 40th anniversary.

The two stars are among a list of 10 who will be hosting shows and playing the music which inspired them.

The series, called Radio 1 Legends, starts on 17 September, with former Beatle Sir Paul hosting the first show.

Other artists involved include Oasis songwriter Noel Gallagher, Blondie’s Debbie Harry, the Arctic Monkeys, Gwen Stefani and Paul Weller.

DJ Paul Oakenfold, Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl and big-beat pioneer Norman Cook – better known as Fatboy Slim – are also taking part.

Tribute album

Sir Paul will play tracks from Elvis Presley, Chuck Berry, and Jerry Lee Lewis to the Rolling Stones and songs from his old band.

The star said: “As I am a legend in my own street, they’ve very kindly asked me to do my own show, talk about people who inspired me and play my favourite records.”

Radio 1 marks its 40th birthday from 17-28 September.

As part of the anniversary, current DJs from the Radio 1 roster will co-host shows with DJs from yesteryear.

On 30 September, the date of the station’s first broadcast in 1967, breakfast show DJ Chris Moyles will host a show with Tony Blackburn – the first DJ to appear on the network.

The station is also due to release an album of cover versions featuring tracks by the Kaiser Chiefs, Amy Winehouse, Girls Aloud and Robbie Williams next month.

The compilation includes versions of 40 songs, one taken from each of the years that the station has been on air.
