Universal UK top man David Joseph will be interviewed by Lauren Laverne at this year’s Radio Festival, the big convention for radio types that will take place in Salford next month. The 6music presenter will question the Universal Music chief about how the mega-major’s UK division views the role of radio now and in the future as a medium for getting music to the masses.

Confirming the booking, Absolute Radio’s Clive Dickens, in his guise as Chair of the Radio Festival, told reporters: “I have known David for over fifteen years and I’m thrilled he has agreed to share his unique experience for the first time at this year’s Radio Festival. He has been at the centre of the music industry during its biggest period of change and evolution and has unrivalled in-depth knowledge of this highly creative market. His appearance will provide a rare opportunity for delegates to listen to his thoughts and get the inside track on one of Europe’s leading music content companies”.
