Glenn Hughes, frontman of rock outfit Black Country Communion, though possibly best known for his stint fronting Deep Purple in the mid-seventies, has joined digital rock station Planet Rock. He will take over the Sunday teatime slot previously fronted by The Quo’s Francis Rossi.

Says Planet Rock Programme Director Trevor White: “Glenn continues Planet Rock’s tradition of bringing rock’s biggest names to the airwaves, after a career spanning 40 years he brings a wealth of stories from his life on the road, in the studio, his friendships with the likes of Keith Moon and Bonzo, the highs, the lows, and, of course, the excesses, and his choice of music makes the show a must listen”.

Glenn himself added: “I would like to thank Planet Rock for giving me the opportunity to share with listeners the songs that have shaped my life. Every song is chosen by me, and there will rock n roll stories along the away. I am a messenger”.
