Frank Turner Tweet In

Singer songwriting firebrand Frank Turner, takes control of Now Playing @ 6 Music, interacting with his fans online to shape a playlist of his musical influences and current favourites.

The former vocalist in punk band Million Dead, Frank has gone from playing gigs in fans' front rooms to headlining Wembley Arena all through good old fashioned touring and word of mouth. Equally happy on stage at Reading and Leeds or the Cambridge Folk Festival, Frank has released four albums, the latest of which - England Keep My Bones - is a firm favourite of 6 Music's Steve Lamacq.

Backstage from Glasgow Barrowlands, in the midst of his sellout UK tour, Frank collaborates with the 6 Music audience to make a playlist of musical favourites, from rarities and B-sides, to the artists which have influenced his sound. There's also another Digital Digest of the latest goings on in digital music and in the final 30 minutes, a guest blogger takes over the show.
