Kaiser Chiefs take over 6 Music reins for Sunday afternoons in June

Ricky Wilson and Nick Hodgson from Kaiser Chiefs are set to take over BBC 6 Music for A Month Of Sundays from 7 June.

The dynamic duo have already co-presented two shows on the network with Steve "Lammo" Lamacq and are delighted to be let loose on their own show for a month.

Ricky Wilson said: "Nick and I are looking forward to rifling through our record collection, playing some of our favourite songs and any current tracks that are grabbing our attention.

"And, if all else fails, we can ring up Lammo for some tips!"

Ricky and Nick will be taking over the 6 Music airwaves on Sundays from 3.30 to 5.30pm throughout June, playing tunes from the likes of Kasabian, Paloma Faith and Thin Lizzy to The Small Faces, The Specials and Yeah Yeah Yeahs.

Paul Rodgers, Editor, 6 Music, said: "Kaiser Chiefs are what the Month Of Sundays shows are all about – finding a space to showcase some very special, highly-sought-after talent. We're delighted to have them on board this June."

Kaiser Chiefs are a five-strong English indie rock band from Leeds who formed in 2003. The group's hugely successful debut album, Employment, was released in 2005. It saw them collect three Brit Awards that year and was shortlisted for the Mercury Prize.

Their second album, Yours Truly, Angry Mob, saw their hit single Ruby shoot to the top of the UK charts. Last autumn the group released their third album, Off With Their Heads.

A Month Of Sundays is on BBC 6 Music on Sundays, 3.30-5.30pm
