Martin’s radio slot next Sunday!

As we mentioned some time ago, Martin is going to be hosting his own radio show for 2 weeks starting next Sunday 14th on BBC Radio 6 Music at 2pm for 2 hours.

Here is Martin with a new hairstyle posing for this (sadly too short) radio show.

Martin show will air on Sunday 14th and Sunday 21st July

As always you can listen to the show live from the BBC Radio 6 Music website or you can listen to it afterwards from the iPlayer.

Martin Freeman’s to host BBC Radio 6 Music show

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.

Martin Freeman on Desert Island Discs

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:

The Unfortunates: listen or download

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.

The Unfortunates to air again on BBC Radio 3

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.
