Blondie founding members, singer Debbie Harry and guitarist Chris Stein, will join smoothfm’s weekend lineup with their own show on Saturday April 29.
In the GfK radio ratings results released yesterday, smoothfm ranks #1 FM station in Sydney and Melbourne.
Blondie has a new studio album, “Pollinator”, due for release on Friday May 5.
Radio has always been critical to the band’s success with their timeless rock classics always finding a home on classic hits and rock formats. Debbie Harry was once employed by the BBC working in the radio production department in New York.
Georgie Page, smoothfm program director, said: “We’re so lucky to have such a range of incredible artists keen to host shows on smoothfm. Our listeners love hearing about their lives and the stories behind their success. Debbie and Chris from Blondie are such an iconic duo in music and their incredible chemistry and sense of humour will make for some great radio shows.”
Harry and Stein can be heard on smoothfm in Sydney and Melbourne and on smoothfm DAB+ from Saturday April 29 to Saturday May 20.
