Tim’s Twitter Listening Party – the online album playback series launched by Charlatans frontman Tim Burgess during lockdown – is to become a radio show. A move I think we can all agree took a lot longer than it should have. Anyway, it will air over six weeks on Absolute Radio this summer.

“After three years online, it’s exciting to be bringing The Listening Party to the radio airwaves with Absolute Radio”, says Burgess. “We’ve got some ace albums and brilliant guests lined up”.

Those there mentioned guests set to join Burgess on Sunday evenings from 10pm until midnight, starting 26 Mar, include The Kinks – running through their new compilation ‘The Journey Part 1’ – and Fall Out Boy – looking at their new album ‘So Much (For) Stardust’.

Absolute Radio’s Content Director Paul Sylvester comments: “Tim’s Listening Party has become a phenomenon. Giving audiences the chance to listen to the music and conversation while engaging with other fans on social media ties everything together. It fits perfectly with Absolute Radio’s specialist and storytelling strategy, and we can’t wait to work with Tim to get the show on-air”.

Meanwhile, Tim’s Twitter Listening Party continues to run daily on, well, Twitter. Being chatted about tonight is Trampolene’s ‘Rules of Love And War’. Find out more here.
