Iggy Pop will offer listeners an alternative festive soundtrack when he presents a Christmas Day show on the BBC's digital radio station, 6 Music.
The singer, fresh from his latest tour with the Stooges, will present two programmes over the festive period on 6 Music, part of a Christmas and New Year lineup that also includes Metallica's Lars Ulrich and Mick Jones and Paul Simonon of the Clash.
"To come up with the tunes that fit the concept of each show, I've had to dig back to things that I haven't heard in a long, long time, but that still carry memories of joy and compulsion," said the Lust for Life and The Passenger singer, who is also famous for his collaborations with David Bowie.
"I thought I better check these old numbers to see if they still made the grade for me. They still do."
