Shaun Keaveny hasn’t even left the BBC radio building yet, but he’s already announced his second post 6 Music gig. He will be presenting a new podcast where people discuss their music festival memories, while also proposing who would play – and what food and drink would be available – at their dream festival.

The podcast is called ‘The Line-Up’, and among those set to do the festival nostalgia thing, while compiling their dream festival line-up, are Imagine Dragons, Manic Street Preachers, Tom Grennan, Jodie Whittaker and Shaparak Khorsandi.

Says Keaveny: “‘The Line-Up’ is a chance for me to essentially play god to all manner of great guests and grant them their ultimate festival wishes. Whatever they do desire – be it Hendrix jamming with Taylor Swift, or a helicopter on site delivering their favourite curry – all I ask for in return, like any god worth their salt, is total eternal devotion!”

Produced by audio company Cup And Nuzzle, the first edition of the new podcast will go live on 15 Sep. Keaveny is also voicing a new comedy show on Absolute Radio called ‘Rockanory’, written by comedian and broadcaster Jon Holmes.
