Tony Iommi to host a weekly radio show

Here’s some text from Tony’s official website:
Tony Iommi joins Planet Rock next month to present Black Sunday on the nation’s favourite classic rock radio station.
Beginning on 18 December at 7pm, the launch of the two-hour programme coincides with Tony’s induction into the UK Music Hall of Fame, confirming his status as one of rock’s most influential and enduring talents. Each week, Tony will be joined by colleagues and friends from all walks of life who indulge in a common passion for rock music. He will also share his experiences from over 30 years at the top table of rock’s aristocracy, and reveal the stories behind Black Sabbath’s most famous songs. Tony will also invite unsigned bands to send in their demos and will play his pick on air. Speaking about his new show on Planet Rock, Tony said: ‘It’s brilliant to have the chance to do this. It’s something very different for me and I’m really looking forward to it.’ Trevor White, Executive Producer at Planet Rock added: ‘To have Tony join the Planet Rock team is a highlight of my career. I‘ve been a fan since I was 15 years old and saw Black Sabbath at Watford’s top rank suite. There are only a handful of artists who have genuinely influenced rock music since it’s inception and Tony is one of them.’ Tony joins fellow rocker Rick Wakeman on Planet Rock, which is at the forefront of the rock revival in the UK. Planet Rock is available on DAB digital radio across the UK, 861 Sky, ntl 880, telewest 924 and at www.planetrock.co.uk.
Listeners can send requests for their favourite tracks to Tony at tony.iommi@planetrock.com.
Demos from unsigned bands should go to: Tony Iommi, Planet Rock, 7 Swallow Place, London, W1B 2AG.


This now makes two Sabs who have radio shows. Bill Ward does (and has been doing for a couple of years now) a monthly radio show called Rock 50 in a college radio station in California. There’s more information about this show over at Bill’s website.
