Martin will be hosting his very own BBC Radio 6 Music show in the slot that is usually covered by Guy Garvey and that has been covered by Cillian Murphy since March this year.
Martin will be presenting from July 14th until August 4th in the 2pm – 4pm slot (UK Time).
We will post more information when it becomes available, so far this is the press release from the BBC.
It’s been announced (or more like found) that Martin is expected to appear next Sunday (March 31st) on the podcast/radio show from BBC Radio 4 “Desert Island Discs”.
The roughtly 40 minutes’ show’s premise is: “Eight tracks, a book and a luxury: what would you take to a desert island? A castaway guest shares the soundtrack of their lives.” So expect to get some more of Martin’s favourite tracks some are probably going to be included in the upcoming “Soul on the Corner” compilation that’s going to come out on May.
How can you listen to it? Several ways:
Martin Freeman and Danny Dyer will be talking about their upcoming play The Dumb Waiter on BBC Radio 2 next Saturday January 19 at 8am UK Time.
You can listen to the show live here. Otherwise, it will be published on the programme’s page via the iPlayer some minutes after it airs for 29 days.
Martin took part in a radio drama called GK Chesterton – The Club of Queer Trades on BBC 4 back in 2005.
It’s now back on the same Radio. It’s a 6 parts radio drama which you can listen to on the iplayer. Remember that the programmes only last for less than a month.
Check it out now on the BBC’s programme page.
If you were able to catch the re-run of the 1 and a half hour dramatisation of The Unfortunates today on BBC Radio 3, then that’s great. Being on BBC Radio means that anyone can listen, not just the lucky folks that are in the UK.
But if you weren’t able to then you can listen to it still:
- Using the iplayer: go to the programme’s website and press play. You can listen to it for 29 days.
- Since you could be reading this in the future, we’ve uploaded it here so you can download it.
In 2010, Martin starred in a dramatisation of “The Unfortunates” a novel by BS Johnson’s from the 1960s.
This dramatisation is an adaptation of BS Johnson’s ‘forgotten masterpiece’ in which a sports journalist’s memories of an old friend are triggered when he travels to a strange city to cover a football match.
You can listen to it live this Sunday, November 25th at 7:30 PM UK Time from this link or after it airs you can listen to it on the programme’s website.
Martin was joined today by several guests to celebrate and listen to The White Album at BBC Radio 6 music. The show was not live but we had 3 hours of exquisite music and interesting behind the scenes stories even from George Harrisons’ son.
Here are some photos from when they recorded the show:
